Multi-talented music industry entrepreneur Nabil Ayers launched a book tour in support of his memoir, My Life in the Sunshine: Searching for My Father and Discovering My Family, which includes several Ace Hotel locations throughout the U.S. Nabil will kick off his tour at Ace Hotel Brooklyn on June 7th with a conversation led by a special guest host, Wyatt Cenac in partnership with Books Are Magic Bookstore

In his memoir, Nabil uncovers the pain of rejection, the joy of inclusion, and how to redraw the lines that define race and family. Throughout his adult life, whether he was opening a Seattle record store in the ’90s or touring the world as the only non-white member in alternative rock bands, Nabil felt the shadow and legacy of his father, Roy Ayers, musical genius, and his race, everywhere.
