Author Mitchell S. Jackson @ the Olympia Library

Event: 
Mon, 06/01/2015 - 6:30pm - 7:45pm
Mitchell Jackson is an all-too-rare success story. He grew in a crime-ridden neighborhood of Portland, Oregon during the crack epidemic of the 1990’s. He went to prison for selling drugs, yet managed to channel his hard times into a book that is already being considered for literary prizes.
 
"It’s tough to write beautifully about ugly things,” writes award-winning author Victor LaValle, “but Mitchell Jackson makes it look easy.” The story focuses on a man and a woman – his mother - trying to overcome the enormous hurdles life has put in front of them. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that, in this situation, simply doing one’s best takes great courage.
 
All Timberland Regional Library programs are free and open to the public.
