LWV Williamsburg Book Club!

Wednesday, March 31; 4 PM. 
We chose HOMEGOING, a novel by Yaa Gyasi that follows two sisters — one who is sold into slavery, and another who marries an Englishman. One of Oprah’s Best Books of the Year and a PEN/Hemingway award winner, Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi’s extraordinary novel illuminates slavery’s troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed—and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
