Jewell Parker Roades, the Virginia G. Piper Chair in Creative writing, meets fans and discusses "Sugar," her new novel for middle readers. It tells the story of a 10-year-old girl who lives on a sugar plantation on the banks of the Mississippi and takes it upon herself to serve as the cultural bridge between the plantation residents and the Chinese workers who come to harvest the cane. Roades will sign copies of her book after the presentation.

DETAILS >> 7 p.m. Friday, May 17. Changing Hands Bookstore, 6428 S. McClintock Dr., Tempe. Free. (480) 730-0205 or www.changinghands.com.
