      EVENT DETAILS
      Reading & Signing with Nikki Grimes

      Cellar Door is pleased to host author Nikki Grimes for the release of her new memoir in verse, Ordinary Hazards.  Growing up with a mother suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and a mostly absent father, Grimes found herself terrorized by babysitters, shunted from foster family to foster family, and preyed upon by those she trusted. At the age of six, she poured her pain onto a piece of paper late one night - and discovered the magic and impact of writing. For many years, Nikki's notebooks were her most enduring companions. In this accessible and inspiring memoir that will resonate with young readers and adults alike, Nikki shows how the power of those words helped her conquer the hazards - ordinary and extraordinary - of her life. Books are available to pre-order in-store or online at cellardoorbookstore.com. Only books purchased from Cellar Door Bookstore will be granted access to the signing line.
