Join us on Wednesday, March 18, to discuss Washington Black by Esi Edugyan.
In 1830, eleven year old George Washington Black is a field slave on a Barbados sugar
plantation. Everything changes when he is chosen to be the manservant of his master’s brother,
a naturalist, inventor and abolitionist. Wash’s place in his world is never predictable, and the
novel has many elements of a 19th-century adventure story.
A Top Ten Book of the Year from The New York Times and a finalist for the Man Booker Prize.
Join us on Wednesday, May 20, to discuss Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait? by Tina Cassidy
The Wall Street Journal called this book a “heroic narrative” that describes how Alice Paul, a
Quaker from New Jersey, became a leading suffragist in the fight for women’s equality. Paul and
her colleagues dealt with many setbacks, political infighting, and above all, the policies and
prejudices of President Woodrow Wilson. This is a rousing portrait of a little-known feminist
heroine and an eye-opening exploration of a crucial moment in American history 100 years
before the Women’s March.
