    MOCAREADS “The Leavers” By Lisa Ko At MOCA

    Bring your family along for an evening with Lisa Ko, the author of The Leavers, inspired by the stories of children in foster care or are adopted because their undocumented immigrant parents were deported or detained indefinitely. The story tells the tale of Deming Guo and his mother, Polly, who goes to her job one day and never returns. Deming eventually gets adopted by two white college professors who change his name to Daniel Wilkinson. Afterwards, there will be a book signing. my.mocanyc.org
