In Bearing Witness: Not So Crazy in Alabama, Harlem native CARLA
THOMPSON meets an itty bitty beauty queen, a redemptive ex-con, and a
wheelchair-bound quiz kid among others and discovers that the American
South is a complex intersection of race and class filled with people who go
about the business of living the best way they can.
MARIA MAZZIOTTI GILLAN explores her life as a woman--wife, ;mother,
daughter--in all its complexities while examining that life through the lens of
ethnicity and class>> She will; be readng from Italian Women in Black
Dresses as well as from her forthcoming book, All That Lies Between Us.
