Author Sharyn Skeeter Releases New Literary Fiction - Dancing with Langston
Author Sharyn Skeeter is pleased to announce that her book, Dancing with Langston has been chosen as an Adult Multicultural Fiction finalist in Foreword Reviews' 2019 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards.
Carrie, a business manager who always wanted to be a dancer, has two commitments today. She made a promise to her late father to move Cousin Ella, a former Paris caf? dancer, from her condemned Harlem apartment to a safe place. She's also committed to catch a flight to Seattle with her husband for his new job. But Cousin Ella resists leaving the apartment where she's had salons with Langston Hughes. She also has a mysterious gift that she wants Carrie to earn. If she does, a revelation about Carrie's father and his cousin Langston Hughes will change her life.
Praise for Dancing with Langston:
"Its details exquisite and its characters compelling, Dancing with Langston is a powerful novel about the rewards and the realities of following one's dreams." -5 stars, Foreword Clarion Review
"A family tale that skillfully brings the magic of the Harlem Renaissance into the present." - Kirkus Review
"Dancing with Langston is one of the most beautiful, brilliant debut novels I've had the pleasure of reading in years. With a poet's skill, and decades of historically important experience in publishing, Sharyn Skeeter has crafted a story that generously delivers black American history and culture, humor, a cast of vibrant, memorable characters, and a vivid portrait of one of the world's most celebrated literary artists, Langston Hughes, who just happens to be her distant relative. But of even greater importance for this reader, her novel---very original, very fresh, very dramatic--is a deeply moving story about the love of a daughter for a complex father she comes to fully know only after he is gone. It is about the importance of family--the ones we are born into and the ones we create and love during our journey through life. And about something we all have felt profoundly in our depths--the necessity and difficulty of following one's dreams." --Dr. Charles Johnson, Middle Passage
Dancing with Langston is available for purchase in print and ebook formats.
