Event Details

Help celebrate the launch of Melanie S. Hatter's second novel, Malawi's Sisters, which won the inaugural Kimbilio National Fiction Prize, selected by Edwidge Danticat.

Hatter’s artful, moving novel looks closely at the murder of a young black woman and her family’s devastation. Old — and new — questions about race and civil rights in 21st Century America arise alongside the unfolding story of Malawi and those who live in the wake of her loss.
