Tickets remain for a talk by Isabel Wilkerson about her book “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration,” this year’s UC Davis Campus Community Book Project selection.

Wilkerson is set to speak at 8 p.m. at the Mondavi Center. A book signing will follow.

Wilkerson, who won a 1994 Pulitzer Prize as a New York Times reporter, interviewed more than 1,200 people over 15 years in preparation for her bestselling book chronicling life in America from 1915 to 1970 when some 6 million African-Americans fled the segregated South to northern cities and the promise of jobs, voting rights and better schools for their children.

“The Warmth of Other Suns” was named to more the 30 year-end best-of lists for 2010 and received a number of awards, including the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction and the Lynton History Prize from Harvard and Columbia universities. Wilkerson is a professor of journalism and director of the narrative nonfiction program at Boston University.
