Sheri Reynolds to Discuss New Book May 31 at Hampton Public Library

Sheri Reynolds, the Ruth and Perry Morgan Chair of Southern Literature at Old Dominion University, will discuss her latest novel, "The Sweet In-Between," at the Hampton Public Library, Sunday, May 31, at 2 p.m.

Described by the publisher as "a lyrical tale of a family of misfits ... [and] a poignant story of an unforgettable character's coming-of-age," Reynolds' new book tells the story of an almost-18-year-old girl, Kendra "Kenny" Lugo, growing up in a Virginia tidewater town and struggling with teenage insecurities and confusion about her sexuality.

The library is located on 4207 Victoria Blvd., Hampton. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Susan Edmonson at edmonson@cox.net or 325-6676.

"The Sweet In-Between" is available for purchase at the University Village Bookstore, located at the corner of Monarch Way and 45th Street.
