Author Julie Lythcott-Haims reads from and discusses her work. Her latest book is Real American: A Memoir (Henry Holt and Company, 2017). "Lythcott-Haims never comes to a tidy conclusion about how to view race relations in America, because there isn't one. By allowing us to witness a woman coming to terms with herself, and finding nothing but pride and love there, she offers a blueprint for how others might try to do the same." -- The New York Times. Free.
