Such Kindness by Andre Dubus III - Author, Lecturer + Speaker

"SUCH KINDNESS is the story of people whose stories are rarely told. The novel charts a remarkable rebirth, not from poverty to wealth but from bitter helplessness to the knowledge of self worth. The result is a gripping and transformational journey towards kindness. The result is also a tremendously moving novel."
- Ann Patchett
