A Mother & Son on the Run, a New American Classic, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing

Jeanine Cummins is the author of the bestselling memoir A Rip in Heaven, as well as the novels The Outside Boy and The Crooked Branch. She will discuss and sign American Dirt ($26.99 Flatiron). Already being hailed as "a Grapes of Wrath for our times" and "a new American classic," American Dirt is a rare exploration into the inner hearts of people willing to sacrifice everything for a glimmer of hope.

Forced to flee Acapulco, Lydia and her 8-year-old son, Luca, find themselves worlds away from their comfortable middle-class existence. Instantly transformed into migrants, Lydia and Luca ride la bestia—trains that make their way north toward the United States, which is the only place Javier, the jefe of the newest drug cartel that has gruesomely taken over their city, can't get to them. As they join the countless people trying to reach el norte, Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?
