Novel Focused on Black Family in Detroit – THE TURNER HOUSE

Tune in to KAZI 88.7FM Monday at 8am CST/9am EST for my interview with Angela Flournoy, author of the new novel, THE TURNER HOUSE.   THE TURNER HOUSE is a wonderful Black family saga set in Detroit primarily in 2008 with some flashback scenes featuring the parents.  While the thirteen Turner siblings have some major issues from the oldest being haunted by a haint and the youngest being addicted to gambling, the novel maintains a hopeful tone.

Angela Flournoy is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she received a Dean’s Fellowship, and the University of Southern California. She has taught writing at the University of Iowa and Trinity Washington University, and has worked for the Washington, D.C. Public Library. She was raised in Southern California by a mother from Los Angeles and a father from Detroit.
