CANCELLED Bernice McFadden signs GATHERING OF WATERS

Friday, February 24, 2012 - 5:00pm

 UNFORTUNATELY, BERNICE IS VERY ILL AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE IT TO OXFORD FOR HER EVENT THIS FRIDAY. WE STILL HAVE PLENTY OF COPIES OF HER BOOK, GATHERING OF WATERS. Bernice L. McFadden is the author of seven critically acclaimed novels including the classic Sugar and Glorious, which was featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, selected as the debut title for the One Book, One Harlem program, and was a finalist for the NAACP Image Award. She is a two-time Hurston/Wright Legacy Award finalist, as well as the recipient of two fiction honor awards from the BCALA. Her sophomore novel, The Warmest December, was praised by Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison as "searing and expertly imagined." McFadden lives in Brooklyn, New York.

"The rich text is shaped by the African American storytelling tradition and layered with significant American histories. Recalling the woven spirituality of Toni Morrison’s Beloved, this work will appeal to readers of mystic literature."
--Library Journal

"McFadden makes powerful use of imagery in this fantastical novel of ever-flowing waters and troubled spirits."
--Booklist
