Stories of Exile Presents African Town with authors Irene Latham and Charles Waters

Tuesday, December 19, 2023

Authors discuss the writing of African Town. The last book in the Stories of Exile Book Club series is African Town, a story about the journey of 110 captured Africans brought to Mobile, Alabama, on the last slave ship, Clotilde. Enjoy an evening in discussion with authors Irene Latham and Charles Waters as they share the inspiration for their young-adult novel-in-verse, and talk about the incredible writing journey that brought them face-to-face with the living descendants of those 110 exiles. Live-stream this event on the Hoover Library Facebook and YouTube pages. Location: Shakespeare Room
