Mr. Bradley co-edited a forthcoming edition of the book Three Days Before the Shooting... with John Callahan, Ralph Ellison’s literary executor. Mr. Bradley read from Invisible Man and talked about the second novel, Mr. Ellison’s working habits, and his experiences researching his papers. He responded to questions from members of the audience.
