Seattle Reads: Meet Angela Flournoy says
Meet author Angela Flournoy and join the conversation about this year's Seattle Reads selection, "The Turner House." This program is presented in partnership with Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute.

Love, sacrifice, pride, and unlikely inheritances; "The Turner House" is a compelling consideration of the price we pay for our dreams, and the ways in which our families bring us home.

Growing up in California, Angela Flournoy often visited the place where her father is from, Detroit, Michigan. The fiction she read never depicted the experiences of people like her family – working class African Americans who made up the majority of a city. "The Turner House" explores this American story.
