Book Launch for Ladee Hubbard’s THE TALENTED RIBKINS

Octavia Books will host the book launch for Ladee Hubbard’s The Talented Ribkins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 8, at their storefront (513 Octavia).

Inspired by W. E. B. Du Bois’s famous essay “The Talented Tenth” and fueled by Ladee Hubbard’s marvelously original imagination, The Talented Ribkins is a big-hearted debut novel about race, class, politics, and the unique gifts that, while they may cause some problems from time to time, bind a family together.
