CODA Author Kambri Crews Coming to Texas

CODA Author Kambri Crews Coming to Texas

Note: All events are in Year 2012.

Kambri Crews, CODA author of Burn Down the Ground: A Memoir (Random
House), will be signing books, taking questions from the audience, and
reading from her memoir at free events throughout Texas.

Burn Down the Ground is Crews’ powerful, affecting, and unflinching
memoir about her unconventional childhood living with deaf parents in a
tin shed in rural Texas, and her attempts to reconcile that harrowing
childhood to her present life—one in which her father is serving a
twenty-year sentence in a maximum-security prison for attempted murder.

Crews now runs her own PR and production company in New York City. A
renowned storyteller and public speaker, she has performed in New York
at The Moth’s Mainstage, The 92Y, UCB Theatre, SXSW (South by
Southwest) and given speeches at high schools, universities and
DeafHope, a nonprofit dedicated to ending domestic and sexual violence
against deaf women and children.

Crews’s memoir has received rave reviews from publications including
Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, Glamour, ELLE magazine,
and Library Journal. Crews will appear at the following events:

PRAISE FOR BURN DOWN THE GROUND:

“Poignant and unsettling.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A compelling testament to the strength of the human spirit.”—Booklist

“Crews’ account (the title refers to lighting brush on fire to clear
out snakes) is as well-paced and stirring as a novel. In her fluid
narrative (she’s also a storyteller on the side, a gig that helped her
develop this book), Crews neither wallows in self-pity nor plays for
cheap black-comedic yuks. Instead, this book stands out for what
matters most: Crews’ story, bluntly told.” —Elle magazine

“Harrowing…A remarkable odyssey of scorched earth, collateral damage,
and survival.” —Publishers Weekly
