"An Afternoon with…." Pulitzer Prize Author Isabel Wilkerson at the Houston Public Library[2/23/2013]


BY Alex Wang [ January 18, 2013 at 16:51:44 ]

The Houston Public Library (HPL) in partnership with the Houston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC) will be hosting HMAAC’s Spring Literacy Lecture featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 2 PM in the Julia Ideson Building Auditorium, 550 McKinney, 77002, 832-393-1662. This presentation is also part of the Library’s “An Afternoon with…” author series. Wilkerson will be discussing her first novel “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.” This event is free and open to the public. For more details visit www.houstonlibrary.org or call 832-393-1662.

About the Book
In the tradition of works by Taylor Branch and J. Anthony Lukas, “The Warmth of Other Suns” chronicles a watershed event in American history; the decades-long migration of African Americans from the South to the North and West, from World War I through the 1970s—through the stories of three individuals and their families. Over a decade in the writing and research, and drawing on archival materials and over 1,200 interviews, “The Warmth of Other Suns” traces the lives of Ida Mae Gladney, George Starling and Robert Foster, from their difficult beginnings in the South, to their critical decisions to leave behind all they know and look for a better life in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles.

About the Author
Isabel Wilkerson won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing for her work as Chicago Bureau Chief of “The New York Times” in 1994, making her the first black woman in the history of American journalism to win a Pulitzer Prize and the first African American to win for individual reporting. Wilkerson also won a George Polk Award, a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship for her research into the Great Migration, and was named Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists. She has lectured on narrative writing at the Nieman Foundation at Harvard University and has served as Ferris Professor of Journalism at Princeton University and as the James M. Cox Jr. Professor at Emory University. She is currently Professor of Journalism and Director of Narrative Nonfiction at Boston University. During the Great Migration, her parents journeyed from Georgia and southern Virginia to Washington, D.C., where she was born and reared. “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.” is her first book.
