Acclaimed author and Jersey City-native Kevin Powell came home to Jersey City, with a special book signing of his new memoir, THE EDUCATION OF KEVIN POWELL, which details his powerful life story and his growing into manhood in post-Civil Rights America. Both the Greenville Branch Library and P.S. #34 are featured significantly in Powell’s memoir.
The book signing event, part of the Jersey City Free Public Library’s commitment to expanded programming for residents, drew nearly 50 people on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at Sloane Square, 150 Bay Street. WORD Bookstore, a partner in the homecoming event, worked in conjunction as a bookseller of the memoir.
