American Runaway: Black and Free in Paris in the Trump Years
A book talk with Audrey Edwards Wednesday, June 23 at 2:00pm
Journalist Audrey Edwards swore she would leave America if Donald Trump was elected president. He was. And she did. Bolting for Paris.
In this rich collection of essays, cultural and political commentary, and personal “race stories,” an African American runaway of a certain age and wiseass perspective takes aim at America in its twilight—the Donald Trump years. And rediscovers as a self-liberated woman the magic that has always been Paris.
