Noon Time Book Club - Homegoing: A novel by Yaa Gyasi
Wednesday, September 3012:00—1:00 PMZoomRockport Public Library17 School Street, Rockport, MA, 01966
We will be discussing Yaa Gyasi debut novel Homegoing : A Novel. One of Oprah’s Best Books of the Year (2017) 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.
