The Employee Forum Book Club will meet Thursday, October 24th from noon-1 p.m. at 3005 Michael Hooker Research Center to discuss The Water Dancer: A Novel by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Lunch will be provided with registration.
In his boldly imagined first novel, Ta-Nehisi Coates, the National Book Award-winning author of Between the World and Me, brings home the most intimate evil of enslavement: the cleaving and separation of families.
Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her-but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he's ever known.
