Award-winning author Marlon James will discuss his new book next week during the next installment of Brooklyn Voices.
James is presenting his fantasy novel “Moon Witch, Spider King,” the second installment in his acclaimed Dark Star trilogy, “African Game of Thrones,” on Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 6:30 p.m. It’s the same day that Penguin Random House officially publishes “Moon Witch, Spider King.”
James’ trilogy began with New York Times bestseller “Black Leopard, Red Wolf,” where Sogolon the Moon Witch proved a worthy adversary to Tracker as they clashed across a mythical African landscape in search of a mysterious boy who disappeared.
The mystique continues in “Moon Witch, Spider King,” as Sogolon takes center stage and recounts what happened to the boy, and how she plotted and fought, triumphed and failed as she looked for him. The vivid fantasy story also divulges the details of a century-long feud that Sogolon had with the Aesi, chancellor to the king — told from the perspective of a 177-year-old witch.
