Bobbing and Weaving is a new novel set in a hair salon in New York City. Holly, the owner of the stop is struggling to keep the shop open while still maintaining a space that is safe and inclusive. Natural hair, identity, and self-imposed perceptions and biases are at the center of this work. The novel explores several questions:
Why is everyone so obsessed with what everyone else is?
What can we really learn about each other and ourselves when we learn about a person?
Why is it so easy to judge others based on what they look like?
