Meet the Author Event: Conversation and Book Signing with Ilyasah Shabazz, co-author of X: A Novel by Ilayasah Shabaz and Kekla Magoon.

Co-written by Malcolm X’s daughter, Ilyasah Shabazz, this riveting and revealing novel follows the formative years of the man whose words and actions shook the world. Malcolm was a young man with boundless potential but with the odds stacked against him. Losing his father under suspicious circumstances and his mother to a mental health hospital, Malcolm fell into a life of petty crime and eventually prison. Instead of letting prison be his downfall, Malcom found a religion, a voice, and the podium that would eventually make him one of the most prominent figures in the burgeoning Civil Rights movement.
