Here for It, or, How to Save Your Soul in America is out everywhere today!
Dear friends, nemeses, and President Barak Obama,
I wrote a book called Here for It, or, How to Save Your Soul In America and it out in the world today! Here for It is comprised of 21 funny essays about coming of age at the intersections of blackness, faith, queerness, and Americanness. Lin-Manuel Miranda read the book and called it "pop culture-obsessed, Sedaris-level laugh-out-loud funny."
But above all, it's a book about hope. Hope for now. Hope for the future.
Please pick it up or download it this week. I think it’ll make you happy!
