With ‘Kind of Kin,’ novelist Rilla Askew takes a literary look at immigration reform
In each of her novels, Rilla Askew has delved into the history of her native state, earning her three Oklahoma Book Awards and a PEN/Faulkner nomination. Her latest novel, “Kind of Kin,” continues that engagement with Oklahoma, but it’s set in the present day. In it, Askew explores an issue as timely as it is polarizing: immigration reform.
