KIN: Rooted in Hope

February 24 @ 2:00 pm

On Saturday, February 24, at 2:00 p.m., in the Avalon Theater, author Carole Boston Weatherford and her son, illustrator Jeffrey Boston Weatherford, will discuss their latest work, KIN: Rooted in Hope, a book The Bulletin of the Center for Children called “gorgeously rendered,” and one Kirkus Reviews described as “a striking work that reshapes the narrative around enslavement.”

Spanning more than 250 years of the Weatherford family’s Talbot County history, the author and illustrator conjure up the triumphs and losses of their ancestors through Carole Boston Weatherford’s poetry and her son Jeffrey’s astonishing scratch board illustrations. In addition to the voices of their ancestors, we hear from Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, an archaeologist, plantation owners and overseers, the Chesapeake Bay, and the Wye House itself.
