Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran
January 27, 2018 - 3:00pm-4:00pm 

Join the author of the celebrated Berkeley-based novel Lucky Boy at the North Branch for an expansive Q&A!

Lucky Boy tells the story of two mothers -- an illegal immigrant from Mexico who loses her young son Ignacio when she is detained, and an Indian-American woman whose long-frustrated wishes for a child are granted when Ignacio comes into her care. The extraordinary story of these two women and the lucky boy that unites them is equally deft exploring contemporary geopolitical issues as it is communicating the elemental love of a mother for a child.

Extra copies of the book will be available for loan at the North Branch in January, so you will have plenty of time to experience this amazing novel and think of questions YOU want to ask the author!
