Carla Kaplan 

When: Fri., Oct. 4, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: free
While much has been written about the Harlem Renaissance, a new biography explores the period of flourishing African-American art and music from an unlikely point of view: that of the white women who brazenly crossed the color line to enmesh themselves in the scene. In Miss Anne in Harlem: The White Women of a Black Renaissance, author Carla Kaplan aims not to portray the women as heroines but instead to convey the experience of being stuck in an in-between zone — tossed between two worlds that each criticized these women’s actions. Join Kaplan, a professor of American literature at Northeastern University, at Books Inc. in Alameda (1344 Park St., Alameda), where she’ll read from her book and shed light onto a little-known realm of race relations in America.
