Jennifer Morales to present workshop and reading

Thursday April 12, 2018

Times: 7 p.m.

Wisconsin fiction writer Jennifer Morales will read from her award-winning book, “Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories,” April 12 at 7 p.m. in Room A013 at the College of Lake County Grayslake Campus, 19351 W. Washington St. Morales also will offer a same-day, free afternoon workshop on short story writing from 3-4:15 p.m. in Room T234. “Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories” is a collection of nine linked short stories exploring complicated relationships among African-American and Puerto Rican teens and their white classmates and teachers, Vietnam vets, Latino landlords, former Black Panthers and all their families as they search for common ground. A Chicago native, Morales lived for more than 20 years in Milwaukee, where she raised children and became the first Latina to be elected to the Milwaukee Board of School Directors. She holds an M.F.A. from Antioch University–Los Angeles. Now living in Viroqua, Wis., Morales is a board member of the Council for Wisconsin Writers and the Driftless Writing Center.
