American Moses reading at James E. Davis Arts Building

Have you read “American Moses” yet?

Never Sink Books and the Stop Violence Foundation present award-winning journalist and novelist Stephen Witt in a musical reading of his acclaimed novel, “American Moses.” The event is part of the African-American History Month closing ceremony in the gallery of the James E. Davis Arts Building, 80 Hanson Place, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 25.

Set in the early 21st century, “American Moses” is an unconventional love story between a secular Jew from the Midwest and his Caribbean-American wife as they lead an unlikely group of American Jews fleeing their bigoted town in upstate New York for the new “Promised Land” of Las Vegas.

Performing with Witt is the band Social Studies, featuring Johnny Jackpot on banjo, Media Marcos on percussion and ‘Dasia on tambourine and vocals.

Limited edition, signed copies of “American Moses” are available at www.neversinkbooks.com. Unsigned copies are available on Amazon.com.
