Nelson George — acclaimed author, journalist, film director, and Fort Greene neighbor — returns to fiction with the noir mystery The Lost Treasures of R&B. D Hunter -- bodyguard, student of musical history, owner of a security company, and HIV positive hero of The Plot Against Hip Hop -- drifts through Brooklyn’s Brownsville section. Two mysteries -- a contract to locate a legendary rare 45 vinyl record of a duet sung by Otis Redding and Diana Ross in the late 1960s, and an exchange of stolen guns involving D’s client that goes very wrong -- force him to bring his musical knowledge and street smarts to bear in a changing Brooklyn. Nelson George talks about his book and the issues addressed in his work with Miles Marshall Lewis of Progressive urban music site OkayPlayer will co-sponsor this event, and a reception will follow with beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
