Event Details

Eleanor Bennet's final bequest, an audio recording and a homemade Caribbean black cake stowed in the freezer, puzzles her grieving children, Benny and Byron. The story that emerges upends everything the estranged brother and sister thought they knew about their family and themselves, and they must set aside their differences to deal with their mother’s death and her hidden past. Novelist Charmaine Wilkerson explores how secrets kept and stories left untold can "matter even more than the things we do say."
