Sapphire to celebrate new release at Schuler of Lansing

We are SO excited that we’ve booked an event with widely respected bestselling author Sapphire!

Fifteen years after the publication of Push, one year after the Academy Award-winning film adaptation Precious, we are celebrating the release The Kid, in which bestselling author Sapphire tells the electrifying story of Abdul Jones, the son of Push’s unforgettable heroine, Precious.

In The Kid, celebrated writer Sapphire brings her readers deep into the interior life of Abdul Jones, son of her unforgettable heroine, Precious. We meet him at age nine, on the day of his mother’s funeral. Left alone to navigate a world in which love and hate sometimes hideously masquerade, forced to confront unspeakable violence, his history, and the dark corners of his own heart, Abdul claws his way toward adulthood and toward an identity he can stand behind.

This will be a ticketed event, with tickets available at our Eastwood Towne Center location when the store opens on July 5th, the release day of the new book. The first 100 tickets are available free with purchase of The Kid (one ticket per book purchased) and guarantee a seat at the event. Tickets 101 and greater are free with no purchase necessary. The signing will proceed after the author talk in ticket order number.

Tickets can be reserved by phone starting July 5 by calling the store at 517.316.7495
