NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Novels by two Tulane University professors have been chosen for next year's One Book, One City reading and discussion programs in New Orleans and Philadelphia.
A Tulane news release says One Book, One Philadelphia chose Jesmyn Ward's "Sing, Unburied, Sing," while One Book, One New Orleans will feature the novel "Vengeance" by Zachary Lazar.
Ward's book is about a 13-year-old boy whose drug-addicted mother takes him and his toddler sister on a road trip to pick up their white father from prison in Mississippi.
Lazar's narrator tries to unravel the truth behind the supposed crime of a man serving a life term in the Louisiana State Penitentiary for murder.
