Inprint presents an evening of great fiction with Amber Dermont and National Book Award-winner Jesmyn Ward as part of the 2012-2013 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series.

Amber Dermont, a former Inprint fellowship and prize recipient and a graduate of the University of Houston Creative Writing Program, made a splash in the literary world when her debut novel, The Starboard Sea, received a rave review on the front page of The New York Times Book Review.

Jesmyn Ward, whom Publishers Weekly called "a fresh new voice in American literature," won the 2011 National Book Award for her second novel, Salvage the Bones. Her first novel, Where the Line Bleeds, was honored by the Black Caucus of the National Book Awards, was an Essence magazine Book Club Selection and a finalist for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award.
