Book information (visit angelynchristyvoss.com for more information):
Stand a Little Out of My Sun captures the dramatic crosscurrents of life within the folds of a Greek American family in Chicago’s Industrial Southeast Side during the fifties. It tells the story of Sophie Poulos, who becomes the sole protector of her little brother, Niko. Sophie wishes to live with her grandparents with their big passions and abundant love, but Niko idolizes their pa. Nine-year-old Niko becomes the newest member of an under-the-table car business run by his pa. He shuts Sophie out, and she can’t bear the way his eyes have begun to get the same hard flash as their father’s.
Copies of the book are available for purchase at the museum ahead of time, or at the book presentation ($15).
