The ALMOST CRIMSON Milwaukee Book Release Party

  • Boswell Books 2559 N Downer Ave Milwaukee, WI, 53211 United States (map)

Come out and see Dasha Kelly read from her stunning new novel Almost Crimson at Boswell Books; co-hosted by the Milwaukee Public Library.

Praise for Almost Crimson:

"Dasha Kelly writes with equal parts sweetness and sadness about being a human. She writes about girls and women, family, friendship and aching love. Almost Crimsonoffers a full teacup of emotions, past and present, delicately balanced on a wildly beating heart. This author, this novel–blessings to readers and storytellers alike."
—Leesa Cross-Smith, author of Every Kiss A War

"Dasha Kelly's Almost Crimson is a beautiful, poignant account of many lives, tremendous intersections, journeys to wholeness, and an exploration of love and community. This book rightly deserves a place alongside the works of Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, and Toni Cade Bambara."
—Samuel Thompson, nationally-acclaimed Afro-Classical violinist
