De’Shawn Charles Winslow, “Decent People”

7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Presented by the 2022 Black History Celebration and December Magazine
In Conversation with award-winning fiction writer and Saint Louis University professor Ron Austin. Adults.
From Center for Fiction First Novel Prize-winning author De’Shawn Charles Winslow, “Decent People” is a sweeping and unforgettable novel of a Black community reeling from a triple homicide, and the secrets the killings reveal. In the still-segregated town of West Mills, North Carolina, in 1976, three enigmatic siblings—are found shot to death in their home. The people of West Mills— on both sides of the canal that serves as the town’s color line—are in a frenzy of finger-pointing, gossip, and wonder. The crime is the first reported murder in the area in decades, but the authorities don’t seem to have any interest in solving the case. Fortunately, one person is determined to do more than talk.
