The Fog Machine
“Insightful and highly readable. Written with sensitivity and insight about the nature of prejudice. The Fog Machine will resonate with teens and older readers alike.” —John Dittmer, author, Local People: The Struggle for Civil Rights in Mississippi
The Fog Machine is historical fiction set against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement, from 1954 to 1964, through the eyes of a young black woman who’s left Mississippi for Chicago, a 12-year-old white girl, and a Chicago law student and Jewish Freedom Summer volunteer from New York City. Their lives collide as each person questions what freedom means and the price they’ll pay to have it.
