A Place at the Table is available June 4!
A Place at the Table tells the story of three richly nuanced characters whose paths converge in a chic Manhattan café: Bobby, a gay southern boy who has been ostracized by his family; Amelia, a wealthy Connecticut woman whose life is upended when a family secret finally comes to light; and Alice, an African-American chef whose heritage is the basis of a famous cookbook but whose past is a mystery to those who know her.
As it sweeps from a freed-slave settlement in 1920s North Carolina to the Manhattan of the deadly AIDS epidemic of the 1980s to today’s wealthy suburbs, A Place at the Table celebrates the healing power of food and the magic of New York as three seekers come together in the understanding that when you embrace the thing that makes you different, you become whole.

Praise for A Place at the Table
"No writer should be able to write smoothly and cleanly from three very different perspectives about lost love, betrayal, pound cake, fear, family ties, racism, Baptists, 'the other,' Episcopalians, the South, and New York."
- Clyde Edgerton, author of The Night Train
Praise for A Soft Place to Land
"A beautiful story of the complicated love between two sisters. Book clubs: This is your next pick. I loved this book."
- Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help
Praise for Bound South
"White fearlessly tackles complex issues of class, race, gender, money, and the dark side of family life - all those things southerners are not supposed to talk about." - Lee Smith, author of The Last Girls
