Author Talk: Margaret Wilkerson Sexton with Aimee Phan

Author Talk: Margaret Wilkerson Sexton with Aimee Phan In-Person

The Mill Valley Public Library is proud to present an evening with Oakland's own Margaret Wilkerson Sexton, bestselling author of The Revisioners and A Kind of Freedom to talk about her newest novel, On the Rooftop.

A Reese's Book Club Pick, On the Rooftop tells the story of a mother whose dream of musical stardom for her three daughters collides with the daughters’ ambitions for their own lives—set against the backdrop of gentrifying 1950s San Francisco.

Warm, gripping, and wise, with echoes of Fiddler on the Roof, Margaret Wilkerson Sexton’s latest novel is a moving family portrait from “a writer of uncommon nerve and talent” (New York Times Book Review).

Margaret will be joined by moderator Aimee Phan. Aimee is the author of The Reeducation of Cherry Truong and We Should Never Meet. A 2010 National Endowment of the Arts Creative Writing Fellow, Aimee received her MFA from the Iowa Writer's Workshop, where she won a Maytag Fellowship. She now teaches in the MFA Writing Program and Writing and Literature Program at California College of the Arts.

Our bookseller for this program is Book Passage Corte Madera.
