In Curtis’s Newbery Award-winning novel Bud, Not Buddy, Bud met a girl named Deza Malone. This book is her story. Deza is the smartest girl in her class in Gary, Indiana, and her teachers predict she will do great things. But the Depression hits the Malone family hard, and after Deza’s father leaves to find work, the rest of the family follow, ending up in a Michigan Hooverville. Ages 10-14

This event has been canceled. Christopher Paul Curtis's wife went into labor, and he has had to return to Michigan. The event will be rescheduled at a later date.
