Event to celebrate the launch of Kerri Arsenault’s MILL TOWN. From the Kirkus starred review: “In this masterful debut, the author creates a crisp, eloquent hybrid of atmospheric memoir and searing exposé. She writes urgently about the dire effects the mill’s toxic legacy had on Mexico’s residents and the area’s ecology while evocatively mining the emotional landscape of caretaking for aging parents and rediscovering the roots of her childhood. Bittersweet memories and a long-buried atrocity combine for a heartfelt, unflinching, striking narrative combination.”
Join us to talk privilege and poison, loyalty and labor, class and secrets, and celebrate this wonderful book.
