The Leavers


Lisa Ko
The Leavers Author Event (Fiction)
Wednesday April 25, 2018 7:00 PM

One morning, Deming Guo's mother, an undocumented Chinese immigrant, goes to her job at a nail salon--and never comes home. Adopted by a well-meaning white couple, Deming is renamed Daniel Wilkinson, and must reconcile his adoptive parents' desire that he assimilate with his memories of his mother and the community he left behind. The Leavers is a vivid examination of borders and belonging.

Tropic of Squalor: Poems
Mary Karr
Author Event (Poetry)
Tuesday May 08, 2018 7:00 PM Long before she earned accolades for her genre-defining memoirs, Mary Karr was winning poetry prizes. Now she returns with a collection of visceral, hilarious poems. Her brazen verse calls us out of our psychic swamplands and into that hard-won awareness of the divine, hiding in the small moments that make us human. In a single poem she can generate tears, horror, empathy, laughter, and peace.
