Margaret Wilkerson Sexton with R.O. Kwon – On The Rooftop

September 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

On The Rooftop by author Margaret Wilkerson Sexton is a stunning novel about 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.
The neighborhood is changing, too: all around the Fillmore, white men in suits are approaching Black property owners with offers. One sister finds herself called to fight back, one falls into the comfort of an old relationship, another yearns to make her own voice heard. And Vivian, who has always maintained control, will have to confront the parts of her life that threaten to splinter: the community, The Salvations, and even her family.
In conversation with R.O. Kwon, nationally bestselling novelist for The Incendiaries.
