MEET THE WRITER allows you to discover a behind-the-scenes perspective of BLACK WIDOW as told firsthand by Leslie Gray Streeter. Whether you read the book ahead of time or after you’ve “met” the writer, you’ll get an insider’s look into the writer’s vision, the story behind the story and much more. Leslie Gray Streeter will be interviewed by ESPN West Palm's Josh Cohen and questions will be taken from the audience.

Looking at widowhood through the prism of race, mixed marriage, and aging, BLACK WIDOW redefines the stages of grief, from coffin shopping to day-drinking, to being a grown-ass woman crying for your mommy, to breaking up and making up with God, to facing the fact that life goes on even after the death of the person you were supposed to live it with. While she stumbles toward an uncertain future as a single mother raising a baby with her own widowed mother (plot twist!), Leslie looks back on her love story with Scott, recounting their journey through racism, religious differences, and persistent confusion about what kugel is. Will she find the strength to finish the most important thing that she and Scott started?
