FORT WAYNE—Former Fort Wayne resident, author Jean Love Cush is scheduled to sign copies of her new book “Endangered”  at the Barnes & Noble at the Glenbrook Square Mall, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Oct. 18.

Cush will read selected passages from her novel, participate in a Q&A session have favors to give away.

Provocative and timely, “Endangered” is a superbly written and tremendously moving novel, which probes issues of race, class and justice as a black teenager is accused of murder.

In “Endangered,” a mother’s worst fears comes true when her 15-year-old son is accused of murder. She is desperate to prove his innocence but without the money it will take. That’s when human rights attorneys use the teen’s arrest to fight for much needed change in the justice system.

Endangered has received rave reviews. “Engaging,” “page-turner,” “gripping tale,” and “amazing” are just a few words used by Publishers Weekly, Ebony Magazine, and New York Times Bestselling authors Ashley & Jaquavis to describe Cush’s novel.

A native of Philadelphia, Cush worked for the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office directly out of law school before spending three years as a family law attorney, helping low-income women escape domestic abuse situations. After moving to Fort Wayne, she hosted a one-woman weekly radio show called “A View From Summit,” on which she covered such topics as public safety, urban violence, and innercity education. Cush now lives in Illinois with her husband and two daughters.

The Barnes and Nobles at the Glenbrook Square Mall is located at 4201 Coldwater Road B-01. For more information, call (260) 482-3720.
