Catherine Adel West, author of Saving Ruby King, in conversation with La Tasha Fields - a UWM ACCESS/Boswell virtual event
UWM ACCESS and Boswell present Catherine Adel West, author of SAVING RUBY KING, for a virtual event. For this event, Catherine Adel West will be in conversation with La Tasha fields, President of the Wisconsin State Reading Association.
When Ruby King's mother is found murdered in their home in Chicago's South Side, the police dismiss it as another act of violence in a black neighborhood. But for Ruby, it's a devastating loss that leaves her on her own with her violent father. While she receives many condolences, her best friend, Layla, is the only one who understands how this puts Ruby in jeopardy.
Nancy Johnson, author of the forthcoming novel The Kindest Lie, writes "West is a bold, exciting new voice in fiction. With honesty and compassion, she brings readers beyond the headlines into the real south side of Chicago where love, church, and family abide. She makes us think not only about saving Ruby King, but about finding our own redemption as we save ourselves individually and collectively."
