This Month’s Book Club Selection

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 7:00 p.m. Library Board Room

The Colossus of New York by Colson Whitehead

Our March pick is from Stone Award winning author Colson Whitehead.  Elena Passarello, Associate Professor in OSU’s School of Writing, Literature, and Film, will lead the discussion.

From the publisher:
In a dazzlingly original work of nonfiction, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of The Underground Railroad recreates the exuberance, the chaos, the promise, and the heartbreak of New York. Here is a literary love song that will entrance anyone who has lived in—or spent time—in the greatest of American cities.

Join us for our next book club meeting on March 20 at 7:00pm in the Library Board Room. You can pick up a copy of the book at the Corvallis Library 2nd floor Reference Desk.
