Zadie Smith — the brilliant mind behind novels like White Teeth, On Beauty, and NW — will release her latest, Swing Time, this November. It follows two brown girls, Tracey and Aimee, who dream of being dancers, though only one of them has the talent to make it to the top. Their friendship ends, suddenly, when they’re in their early 20s, but its effects linger as they move throughout their lives.

With a new Zadie Smith novel comes something just as wonderful: The chance to see and hear her in person on her 18-event, 12-city book tour. And EW is excited to exclusively announce those tour dates and locations. Check out the schedule below to see if she’s coming to a city near you, and head to for more information.

Swing Time hits shelves Nov. 15.
