    Thanks for sharing this. Justine did a fabulous presentation at the CAAR conference on Morrison's latest book “A Mercy”. Alan did a very stimulating keynote address on the history behind a new statute to those that died in the slave trade. The piece was commissioned by the town of Lancaster and it's very moving. If I could be in Durham instead of Paris on this date, I would definitely attend this. Enjoy

  2. I wish I could attend too Angela. I'llbe sure to pick up “A Mercy” this summer.
