LOCAL FAME ... Heidi Durrow, whose debut novel, "The Girl Who Fell from the Sky," won the Bellwether Prize recognizing fiction that addresses issues of social injustice, will be reading from her book on Wednesday, April 7 at 5:30 p.m. at Stanford Bookstore, 519 Lasuen Mall, and on Thursday, April 8 at 7:30 p.m. at Kepler's, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park. A Stanford University graduate, Durrow went on to earn graduate degrees from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and Yale Law School. Her book is described as a haunting coming-of-age story set in the 1980s that explores biracial and bicultural identity. Joan Silber, author of "The Size of the World," calls her "a writer to watch."
