Rice Baker-Yeboah - Venom is the Healer

Born and raised in Seattle, Rice reads from his debut novel Venom is the Healer.  With the tender guidance and love of a Mambo, a High-Priestess of Vodun, and some uncanny synchronicity facilitated by a street smart stripper with ample moxie and stylistic flare to accompany her beguiling curves, Naja navigates her fraught eighteen months passage into womanhood and lays claim to all the power it beholds by learning for once and for all, that just as sure as it kills, venom is the healer.
