Her next book, Growing Each Other Up: When Our Children Become Our Teachers, will be out in the fall of this year. Lawrence-Lightfoot has graciously agreed to come back for another reading, so stay tuned... The South End library is fully handicapped accessible. The event is free. Books will be available for sale and signing and to borrow from the library. Seating is limited.
