From “The Iguana Tree” To “Border Child” With Michel Stone
Michel Stone is an author in Spartanburg, South Carolina whose debut novels - “The Iguana Tree” and “Border Child” - tell the story of a couple from Mexico who make their way into this country separately through the perils of illegal border crossings.
They seek work - and a home for themselves and their infant daughter - in the Carolinas, but they encounter obstacles and dangers on both sides of the border.
On Thursday at 6 PM, Michel will appear at the Arts Building here in Chattanooga for the South Bound Author Series from Southern Lit Alliance.
I spoke with her - and Lynda LeVan, executive director of Southern Lit Alliance.
