Colson Whitehead “An Evening with the Author of The Underground Railroad”

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 19:30 to 21:00
Colson Whitehead “An Evening with the Author of The Underground Railroad”

Colson Whitehead is one of the most versatile and innovative writers in contemporary literature. His latest book, The Underground Railroad – winner of the National Book Award and a No. 1 New York Times bestseller – is a tour de force that chronicles a young slave’s desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. With a body of work that includes acclaimed novels such as Sag Harbor, John Henry Days and The Colossus of New York, Whitehead takes on the marginal, the strange and the surreal. Be captivated by his dynamic storytelling, inspiring anecdotes and irreverent rules for writing as he reveals how he came to write his powerful new work.

Books will be available for purchase and signing
