Brave, clear-eyed, and passionate, Mychal Denzel Smith’s Stakes Is High — the follow-up to his bestselling Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching — is the book we need to guide us past crisis mode and through an uncertain future. The events of the past decade, in particular the election of Donald Trump, have forced us to reckon with who we are as a country and who we want to be. We have been invested in a set of beliefs about our American identity: our exceptionalism, the inevitable rightness of our path, and the promise that hard work and determination will carry us to freedom. But in Stakes Is High, Smith confronts the shortcomings of these stories — and with the American Dream itself — and calls on us to live up to the principles we profess but fail to realize. In this profound work, Smith helps us envision a future that is not as grim as our past, with care, honesty, and imagination. Smith talks with Brit Bennett, bestselling author of The Mothers and The Vanishing Half, about his vital new book live at this special virtual event. Smith will sign and personalize copies of Stakes Is High for ticketholders.
