Homegoing’s many accolades include the NBC's John Leonard First Book Prize, New York Times 2016 Notable Book, one of Oprah's 10 Favorite Books of 2016, NPR's Debut Novel of the Year, one of Buzzfeed's Best Fiction Books Of 2016, and one of the Time 's Top 10 Novels of 2016.  The book begins with the story of two half-sisters, separated by forces beyond their control: One sold into slavery, the other married to a British slaver. Written with tremendous sweep and power, Homegoing traces the generations of family who follow, as their destinies lead them through two continents and three hundred years of history, each life indelibly drawn, as the legacy of slavery is fully revealed in light of the present day. Join us for discussion and conversation.
