02aug6:00 pmEvent OverBook Club at the Morris Center: The Underground Railroad

Event Details

Join us for the launch of Book Club at the Morris Center. For the Summer, we are reading and discussing Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad.

About the Book

Cora is a young slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. An outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is on the cusp of womanhood—where greater pain awaits. And so when Caesar, a slave who has recently arrived from Virginia, urges her to join him on the Underground Railroad, she seizes the opportunity and escapes with him. In Colson Whitehead’s ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor: engineers and conductors operate a secret network of actual tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil.
