Join us for a reading and Q&A with Margaret Wilkerson Sexton, held in the AV Gallery!

With special guest, author and editor Jane Vandenburgh, Margaret will discuss her debut A Kind of Freedom, longlisted for the 2017 National Book Awards! Books Inc Burlingame will be on site with books.

"Evelyn, Jackie, and T.C. are complex and authentic generations of a New Orleans family. The novel's title captures reality for all three: free people trying to exercise free will while the webbing of race and class prevents them from finding free opportunity..."

"[A] luminous and remarkably assured first novel, A Kind of Freedom ... announces [Margaret Wilkerson Sexton] as a writer of uncommon nerve and talent."
-New York Times
