MetroWest Readers Fest invites you to join author Jennifer De Leon at the Goodnow Library in Sudbury on Thursday, Sept. 30 @ 7 pm. This event is a part of ONE, a community-wide read organized by MWRF.
Jenn, a Framingham native and currently a professor at Framingham State University, is the author of White Space: Essays on Culture, Race, & Writing, the recipient of the Juniper Prize for Creative Nonfiction. (She is also the author of the YA novel Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From, longlisted for a Massachusetts Book Award in the “Must Read Middle Grade/Young Adult Literature” category.)
Whether or not you’ve read White Space, we enthusiastically invite you to a lively evening. Come hear Jenn discuss her family and her upbringing, her writing life, and what “White Space” means. If you’d like a head start, feel free to check out the Resources section of the MetroWest Readers Fest website for discussion questions and articles about and by Jenn. Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions, share thoughts, or just listen.
The Silver Unicorn Bookstore will be onsite to sell Jenn’s books at this event. If you'd like to order a book signed by Jenn prior to the event, please visit this link: https://www.silverunicornbooks.com/?q=p.metrowest_reade
