About the Event

Join us for a book signing with Author Brian Buckmire at Lexington Market in The Baltimore Room.  He will be in conversation with our owner Tia "Mz Konnoisseur" Hamilton, about his new Novel Come Home Safe. 

A normal day. Until two siblings are accused of crimes they didn’t commit. Come Home Safe explores the pain, the truths, and the hopes that come with growing up as a person of color in America, as well as why “the talk” and discussions about social justice are so important in the community. This engaging YA novel from ABC News legal analyst Brian Buckmire is told in a way that can help foster conversations about what it means to navigate today’s world and inspire ways to work toward change.

When Reed and Olive left home, they never imagined they’d find themselves questioned, searched, and thrown to the ground by police looking for suspects in recent crimes. As their worst fears become a reality, they must find a way to “prove” their innocence and make it home safe once again.

Come Home Safe is perfect for:

  • Fans of contemporary fiction and true-to-life stories
  • People interested in social justice and societal change
  • Parents and teachers looking to start a conversation and have “the talk” with their teens
  • Anyone looking to better understand America today
  • Young adult readers of Angie Thomas, Nic Stone, Ibi Zoboi, and Jason Reynolds

From ABC News legal analyst and NYC Legal Aid Society public defender Brian Buckmire, this compelling story draws from real-life advice, lessons, and conversations with attorneys, law enforcement, and the wrongfully accused to help turn the whispers and family discussions about racial inequality and mistreatment into wider conversations, healing, and one day … change.
