White Kids

White Kids, based on two years of research involving in-depth interviews with white kids and their families, is a clear-eyed and sometimes shocking account of how white kids learn about race. In doing so, this book explores questions such as, “How do white kids learn about race when they grow up in families that do not talk openly about race or acknowledge its impact?” and “What about children growing up in families with parents who consider themselves to be ‘anti-racist’?”

Presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Book Festival, Wisconsin's premier literary event.  Every fall, it draws a local and regional audience of 12,000-15,000 people for four days of author events.
