Meet Me Halfway, my collection of short stories about race relations in Milwaukee, was published by University of Wisconsin Press in April 2015. Visit the Meet Me Halfway page on the UWP site to learn more about the book and check out my News and Events page to find out about related events.
“The nine loosely connected stories in Morales’ compelling debut collection explore the diverse voices, racial divisions, and intersecting lives within Milwaukee. … Morales’ stories do not shy from her characters’ varied realities and modern-day prejudices. A candid and powerful book of Midwestern stories.” — Leah Strauss, Booklist
Meet Me Halfway has been chosen as the Common Reading Experience for the incoming class at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. This fall, all 4,000 new UWM students will be reading the book and gathering for guided discussions about it and the issues it raises. I’ll be coming to campus for lectures and classroom visits — I’ll post updates on the News and Events page as the dates for public events are set!
About the Cover
The book’s gorgeous cover features three portraits from Milwaukee photographer Barbara J. Miner. See more of Barbara’s work at her website.
