“I am excited and looking forward to seeing it,” exclaims the author, who has been traveling on a whirlwind international tour promoting her book. She was in Paris last week reading selections from Citizen to  rapt crowds at the famed bookstore Shakespeare and Company. A rock star excitement ripped through the large gathering of fans who flocked to see and hear Rankine. Her book about race in America is an international sensation, earning numerous awards in the United States and the United Kingdom including recently being named a finalist for The Forward, the UK’s top prize in poetry collection.
