A quest for Freedom has brought Ji-ji Silapu to Dream City—Washington D.C.—where once, the most famous Dreamer of all marched for the same cause. But the former U.S. capital is the decider of dreams: those granted, and those deferred.

Distinguished Virginia Tech professor Lucinda Roy meets with writers and readers in this informal salon to discuss her latest book: Flying the Coop, the second in the Dreambird Chronicles trilogy. In Flying the Coop, Roy explores “a future world where racial conflict and the urban/rural divide have turned the country into the Disunited States.”
