An Evening with Detroit Satirist Oneita Jackson: Well Done Goods - Well Done Goods - Detroit

FRIDAY, JULY 10An evening with Detroit satirist Oneita Jackson.Author of "Nappy-Headed Negro Syndrome"and "Letters from Mrs. Grundy"Well Done Goods will be hosting this intimate event outdoors, adjacent to the retail store, so we can best socially distance."Damned funny, scalpel-sharp, and moves like a rocket." That's what international bestseller Dave Eggers, author of "The Circle" and other novels said about this powerful little book. It is deceptive in its simplicity, but has many layers and requires several reads. Ron Bernas points out in his Shelf Improvement review that Oneita Jackson "is not an angry black woman, but a bemused black woman." Former Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer said the "Syndrome" satires are "hard-hitting, sensitive, and real." The book was featured as the top item on the 2015 Detroit News Gift Guide.
