The Globe and Mail praises it as “unforgettable… brilliantly conceived\, gorgeously executed. It's a work that promises to lead black literature in a whole new direction.” A Canadian writer of Ghanaian descent\, Edugyan comes to read from her third novel Washington Black\, which follows an 11-year-old field slave from an early 19th century Barbados sugar plantation on a journey around the globe to become a free man. Attica Locke describes it as “nothing short of a masterpiece. Esi Edugyan has a rare talent for… giving her reader a new lens on the world…. This is an epic adventure and a heartfelt tale about love and morality and their many contradictions.” Edugyan’s other works include the novel The Second Life of Samuel Tyne\, shortlisted for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award\, and the nonfiction book Dreaming of Elsewhere: Observations on Home.\n\n“MEG WOLITZER is the novelist we need right now\,” says The Washington Post. Her bestselling novel The Female Persuasion was named one of the most anticipated books of 2018 by Time\, New York magazine\, Entertainment Weekly and elsewhere. The New York Times describes it as “uncannily timely\, a prescient marriage of subject and moment that addresses a great question of the day: how feminism passes down\, or not\, from one generation to the next." Her other major novels include The Interestings\, The Uncoupling\, The Ten-Year Nap\, The Position\, and The Wife\, which according to The New York Times Book Review “deploys a calm\, seamless humor.... Rage might be the signature emotion of the powerless\, but in Wolitzer's hands\, rage is also very funny.” She is also the author of novels for children and young adults. In 2017 she served as guest editor of Best American Short Stories\, and three films have been based on her books: This Is My Life\, directed by Nora Ephron; Surrender\, Dorothy; and The Wife\, with Glenn Close.\n\n  URL:https://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-esi-edugyan-meg-wolitzer-reading/ LOCATION:4300 University Drive\, Houston\, TX\, 77204\, United States GEO:29.7190707;-95.3396721 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=4300 University Drive Houston TX 77204 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=4300 University Drive:geo:-95.3396721,29.7190707 CATEGORIES:Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://inprinthouston.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Esi-Edugyan-and-Meg-Wolitzer.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20181014T160000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20181014T173000 DTSTAMP:20180923T052650 CREATED:20180820T212504Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180820T230037Z UID:26758-1539532800-1539538200@inprinthouston.org SUMMARY:Inprint Book Club: Esi Edugyan’s Washington Black DESCRIPTION:The Inprint Book Club will discuss Washington Black by Esi Edugyan\, who appears as part of the 2018/2019 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series.
