The Freedom to Read Foundation presents featured speaker Jamaica Kincaid, author of Mr. Potter and the forthcoming See Now Then, at its annual banned/challenged author event in conjunction with the 2013 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle. Kincaid is an award-winning writer originally from Antigua whose books include At the Bottom of the River, Annie John, The Autobiography of My Mother, and My Brother. Her 1990 short novel Lucy was challenged as “most pornographic” in 1994 at a Pennsylvania high school. Presented by The Freedom to Read Foundation.
Advance tickets are $20/$15 FTRF members/$10 students & reduced income, at www.ftrf.org and at the door. A dessert reception follows Kincaid’s talk; she also will sign copies of “Lucy” and “See Now Then.” Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.
