Margaret Wilkerson Sexton is well familiar with Berkeley, having graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law. This week, the New Orleans native, who now lives in Oakland, will be back in Berkeley not as a student, but as a celebrated author. Sexton’s debut novel, “A Kind of Freedom” (published by Counterpoint Press of Berkeley), has been receiving high praise from critics and was recently long-listed for the National Book Award for Fiction. The story follows the travails, over three generations, of a New Orleans family that must confront, like millions of others in this country, pervasive racism in its quest to attain something like the American dream. Sexton will read from her novel at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, at Books Inc.
