Authors in Conversation | The Names of All the Flowers: Melissa Valentine in conversation with Sadie Barnette

Join us for two of Oakland’s best as award-winning writer Melissa Valentine and artist Sadie Barnette discuss the beautiful new memoir The Names of All the Flowers, the recipient of the Louise Meriwether First Book Prize.

The Names of All the Flowers connects one tragic death to a collective grief for all Black people who die too young. A lyrical recounting of a life lost, Melissa Valentine’s debut memoir is an intimate portrait of a family fractured by the school-to-prison pipeline and an enduring love letter to an adored older brother.
