Local Author James Wilcox to Discuss His Novel Sex, Lies and the Classroom On December 13 at the Waldo Branch of the Kansas City Public Library

Former Kansas City School District teacher James P. Wilcox discusses Sex, Lies, and the Classroom - a novel set in a fictional inner-city school - on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, at 6:30 p.m. at the Waldo Branch, 201 E. 75th St..

The book follows the life of teacher Nathaniel O'Connell, who thought he knew how to survive at the low-income, ethnically diverse, inner-city school. But a run-in with three students who know how to inflict pain, both physical and emotional, leaves him fighting for his reputation, his job, his family, and his very survival.

Wilcox is the author of a second novel, The M-16 Agenda, and a collection of poetry, Musings of a Particular Bear.

Admission is free. RSVP online or call 816.701.3407.
