The Freedom to Read Foundation is pleased to present author Jamaica Kincaid as the featured speaker at our annual banned/challenged author event in conjunction with the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle.
Kincaid is an award-winning writer originally from Antigua. Her books include At the Bottom of the River, Annie John, The Autobiography of My Mother, My Brother, and Mr. Potter. Her 1990 short novel Lucy was challenged in 1994 at a Pennsylvania high school as "most pornographic." She lives with her family in Vermont.
There will be a wine & dessert reception immediately following Ms. Kincaid's talk. She will be signing copies of Lucy and her forthcoming novel, See Now Then. A limited number copies of each book will be available to attendees for an additional donation when purchasing their tickets.
This event is open to the public.
