Join Durham Literacy Center for a special event featuring #1 New York Times bestselling author, Christina Baker Kline, on October 19th, 2017. Christina will talk about her bestselling book, Orphan Train, copies of which will be available for purchase at the event. Christina will discuss the true story of the 250,000 orphaned and abandoned children sent on trains from the East Coast to the Midwest as indentured servants — and how she stumbled on this hidden piece of American history.
Preceding the author talk, there will be a short performance by The Pitchforks, the oldest a cappella group at Duke University.
