This Is Now: Joy-Ann Reid

February 16 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

MSNBC’s host Joy-Ann Reid traces the extraordinary lives and legacy of civil rights icons Medgar and Myrlie Evers.

Joy-Ann Reid is the host of MSNBC’s The ReidOut. Her books include the New York Times bestseller The Man Who Sold America: Trump and the Unraveling of the American Story. Reid previously hosted the weekend MSNBC show AM Joy. The former managing editor of The Grio, Reid has had columns appearing in The New York Times, The Guardian, The Miami Herald, New York, and The Daily Beast.

In her newest book, Medgar and Myrlie: Medgar Evers and the Love Story That Awakened America, Reid traces the extraordinary lives and legacy of civil rights icons Medgar and Myrlie Evers, situating Medgar Evers’s assassination as a catalyzing moment in American history. When Myrlie Louise Beasley laid eyes on Medgar Evers on her first day of college, it was love at first sight—on both sides. Their romance lasted until he was assassinated. The stories between those two life-changing days fuel this important new book.

MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid will delve into the Evers’ partnership—their challenges, and their non-stop battle to make America better—with Kepler’s Angie Coiro, as part of our This Is Now cultural and political series. Come and join us at Kepler’s Books to hear this inspirational tale.
