Bernard Dillard, Science and Math, has written his first novel, Two ‘Til Midnight, which will be released June 1. The novel follows protagonist Dr. Garnet Gibbs, a strong-minded woman whose faith undergoes several tests as she interacts with those in her inner circle and beyond. Whether helping to rear her grandson in a hip-hop culture she knows nothing about, or standing firm in her fundamental beliefs while not offending her gay co-workers, or enduring others’ gazes because of her physical condition, or witnessing the sharp pangs of racism that impact those she loves, the history professor resolves to stay level-headed and not let her core be shaken. Invisible, friendly forces are assisting her on her journey, while opposing ones are withstanding her. It makes for a unique cosmic battle royale, in which wins and losses play out on both sides.
The book is available for preorder and will be on shelves June 1. A promotional video for the book is posted above.
