Red Balloon Bookshop is thrilled to welcome boxing journalist and author Sarah Deming to St. Paul in honor of her new young adult novel, Gravity. Gravity "Doomsday" Delgado is good at breaking things. But now that she's working with a legendary coach, boxing is helping her break records, competitors, and the barriers she's set for herself. If she can just stay focused, she may even have a shot at the Olympics. Join Sarah and other YA fans for a discussion, Q&A, and book signing in honor of this gritty new novel.
Sarah Deming is a New York City Golden Gloves champion and boxing journalist. She is also the recipient of a Pushcart Prize and a MacDowell Fellowship and has had her work published in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Threepenny Review, and by HBO and CNBC. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Ethan, and coaches and mentors young boxers at NYC Cops & Kids--the real-life gym that inspired Gravity's story.
