Named a best book of the year by The New York Times Book Review\, The Washington Post\, The Boston Globe\, and others\, The Underground Railroad is considered an “American masterpiece” (NPR). Whitehead returns to Houston with his new book The Nickel Boys\, “a stunning novel of impeccable language and startling insight” (Publishers Weekly)\, based on true events from a boys’ reformatory in Jim Crow-era Florida\, about two African American teens whose polarizing world views echo beyond the decades. Whitehead’s many honors include Guggenheim and MacArthur “genius” Fellowships and a Whiting Writers Award. He has taught at many universities\, including the UH Creative Writing Program. \n URL:https://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-colson-whitehead-reading/ LOCATION:Cullen Performance Hall\, University of Houston\, 4300 University Drive\, Houston\, TX\, 77204\, United States CATEGORIES:2020/2021 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://inprinthouston.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Whitehead-600-x-400.jpg END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
