[51] Naima Coster, author of Halsey Street

“I don’t think my characters need to be part of some elite world or to be outstanding in any way to be interesting. Just their inner lives are interesting.” – Naima Coster

Naima Coster is the author of Halsey Street, a novel of family, loss, and renewal, set in a rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn. Halsey Street has been recommended as a must-read for 2018 by People, Essence, Bustle, BitchMedia, The Skimm, and the Brooklyn Public Library. It was a Finalist for the 2018 Kirkus Prize for Fiction. Coster’s second novel, What’s Mine and Yours, is forthcoming from Grand Central Publishing. She lives in New York City with her family.

Renee Powers founded Feminist Book Club in 2018 to provide a space for intersectional feminists to learn, grow, and connect. When not reading or running the biz, you can find her drinking coffee and trying unsuccessfully to teach her retired racing greyhound how to fetch. Favorite genres: feminist thrillers, contemporary literary fiction, short stories, and anything that might be described as "irreverent"
