SUDBURY — Goodnow Library invites the community to an evening with Jennifer De Leon, author of “White Space: Essays on Culture, Race, & Writing,” during the MetroWest Readers Fest.
De Leon is a Framingham native and a professor at Framingham State University. “White Space” was awarded the Juniper Prize for Creative Nonfiction. She also wrote the young adult novel “Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From,” longlisted for a Massachusetts Book Award in the “Must Read Middle Grade/Young Adult Literature” category.
De Leon will discuss her family and her upbringing, her writing life, and what “White Space” means. Attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions, share thoughts, or just listen.
“We’re sure those who attend will be in for a lively and thoughtful evening,” Library Director Esmé Green said. “Anyone interested in learning more about “White Space” can visit the Resources section of the MetroWest Readers Fest website for discussion questions and articles about and by Jenn.”
