6:00pm [6:30pm] Check ‘Em Out Book Club
Check ‘Em Out Book Club will meet in person for its May book discussion to discuss Harlem Shuffle by Colson Whitehead. Harlem Shuffle’s ingenious story plays out in a beautifully recreated New York City of the early 1960s. It’s a family saga masquerading as a crime novel, a hilarious morality play, a social novel about race and power, and ultimately a love letter to Harlem. But mostly, it’s a joy to read, another dazzling novel from the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning Colson Whitehead. Copies of the book are available for check out at both library buildings. No registration required for this free in-person program. For more information call the library at 860-645-0821 or visit our website. About Harlem Shuffle, from www.goodreads.com:
