Author Talk: Dwight Ritter

Growin' Up White

 

 

 

 

 

Please join Brewster resident Dwight Ritter for a discussion of his new novel Growin' Up White. Growin' Up White is the story of the Stoner family, told from the perspective of middle child Rick Stoner. Set during the start and peak of the American civil rights movement in Indianapolis, the story revolves around Rick's coming-of-age—making friends, experiencing first love, and looking racism in the face—in a mostly black neighborhood. It is also is the story of the immense impact that Georgey, a fifty-year-old black, quirky housekeeper from the Bahamas, has on a white family. Dwight was born and raised in Indianapolis, attended the John Herron Art Institute and graduated from Indiana University. He has spent his career as a writer, graphic designer and lyricist.
