Nic Stone, Scott Reintgen 

When: Sun., Jan. 28, 4 p.m. 2018

Maybe you spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day relaxing in your sweats instead of thinking about its namesake. If so, here's your chance to make up for it. Nic Stone's debut novel, Dear Martin, has done the heavy thinking and feeling for you so that you can take another look at one of American history's most prominent figures in a dynamic, modern way. The ongoing relevance of King's teachings in a world of racial profiling and hate crimes is revealed through the letters a young African-American man named Justyce McAllister—a high-achieving student who nevertheless runs afoul of prejudiced police—writes to King to try to make sense of his place in history. Stone has two readings in the Triangle for her instant New York Times best-seller this week; the one at Quail Ridge Books is a conversation with Nyxia author Scott Reintgen. —Ryan Haar
