Sunny Hostin on Summer on Highland Beach with Tia Williams

The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome Emmy award-winning author, lawyer, and television host Sunny Hostin. With her New York Times bestselling Summer Beach series, Hostin aims to make beach reads more inclusive and spotlight historically Black communities. The third and final installment in the series, Summer on Highland Beach, transports readers to the oldest Black resort community in America, founded in the 1800s by Frederick Douglass. The novel follows Olivia Jones, a woman who must grapple with thorny family conflicts and decide whether she will pursue her dreams in Highland Beach. Novelist and editor Tia Williams (The Perfect Find) joins Hostin for a rousing conversation on the novel and her mission to celebrate Blackness through beach reads. After the conversation, Hostin will sign books.
