Walter Mosley, "Blood Grove: An Easy Rawlins Mystery" 

2021 St. Louis County Library Black History Celebration
Frankie Freeman Inspirational Address

In conversation with suspense author Rachel Howzell Hall

Suspense writing legend Walter Mosley presents the crowning achievement in the iconic Easy Rawlins detective series: a crackling, moody, and thrilling novel of vast scope and intimate insight, and a soulful call for justice by any means necessary.

It is 1969, and flames of protest can be seen on the horizon of Los Angeles. Easy Rawlins gets a visit from a Vietnam veteran with a strange story: he was attacked in a citrus grove at the city’s outskirts and may have killed a man. Inclined to turn down what sounds like nothing but trouble, Easy takes the case when he realizes how damaged the young vet is from his war experiences—the bond between veterans superseding all other considerations.

Signed books available from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up and shipping available.

James Clark will receive the Frankie Freeman Inspirational Award during the program. Mr. Clark is the Vice President of Public Safety and Community Response, for the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis.
