J. Patrick Redmond’s Some Go Hungry is a fictional account drawn from the author’s own experiences working in his family’s provincial Indiana restaurant—and wrestling with his sexual orientation—in a town that was rocked by the scandalous murder of his gay high school classmate in the 1980s. Barbara Taylor’s All Waiting Is Long,is set in Scranton, Pennsylvania against the backdrop of the sweeping eugenics movement and rogue coal mine strikes, where the Morgan sisters must choose between duty and desire. Moderated by Kaylie Jones, editor of Kaylie Jones Books, an imprint of Akashic Books.
