Michel Stone Launch Party @ Drayton Mills
Michel Stone releases her new novel, Border Child, at a big launch party at Drayton Mills on Monday, April 10, 6-8 pm. Hub City Bookshop is the bookseller.
Michel Stone, chairman of the board of the Hub City Writers Project, is the author of Hub City Press's Iguana Tree, the story of a Texas border crossing gone bad. In the follow-up book, Border Child, (Nan Talese/Doubleday) Stone solves the mystery of what happened to the missing child, Alejandra.
Hector and Lilia are back in their sleepy hometown of Oaxaca, enjoying a semblance of normal life, with a toddler son and another baby on the way. Then they receive an unexpected tip that might lead them to Alejandra, and both agree they must seize this chance, whatever the cost. Working increasingly illegal jobs to earn money for his journey north, Héctor seeks more information about his long-absent daughter. Meanwhile, a bedridden Lilia awaits the birth of their third child, but cannot keep herself from reliving the worst mistakes of her past.
In luminous, compassionate prose, Michel Stone drops readers into the whirlwind of the contemporary immigrant experience, where a marriage is strained to the breaking point by the consequences of wanting more for the next generation.
