This is a past event.
Wednesday, September 23 at 3:00pmVirtual Event
Want to read a great book? Want to connect with other students? Join us this semester to discuss Esi Edugyan’s new novel Washington Black. It’s the prize-winning story of George Washington Black, a boy who escapes slavery in 19th-century Barbados and travels the world, growing up to be an artist and scientist. The novel has been called “a daring work of empathy and imagination” and “an inspiring story of freedom and self-discovery.” Our monthly discussions will be led by Gabriel Mayora, an assistant teaching professor in English and Women’s and Gender Studies, and Jason Pearl, an associate professor in English. Simply purchase the book on your own, and attend the meetings. Hope to see you there!
