National Book Festival

Washington Post columnist Donna Britt has spent her life surrounded by men – her three brothers, two husbands and three sons. When her brother Darrell was killed by police 30 years ago, Britt unconsciously sought to help other men the way she couldn’t help Darrell. Her new book, “Brothers (& Me): A Memoir of Loving and Giving” (Little, Brown), navigates Britt’s life through her relationships with men, resulting in a tender, funny and heartbreaking exploration of universal issues of gender and race.
