Virtual Author Talk and Q&A with Colson Whitehead via Crowdcast (7/1)

Share this story with your world:

Bank Square Books and Savoy Bookshop & Café, in partnership with The Garde Arts Center, present a virtual author talk and Q&A with Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author Colson Whitehead for the Anchor paperback release of his New York Times bestselling book, THE NICKEL BOYS via Crowdcast on Wednesday, July 1 at 7:00 pm (ET). John F. McKnight Jr., Dean of Institutional Equity and Inclusion at Connecticut College will introduce Colson, and moderate the Q&A portion of the event.

In this bravura follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning #1 New York Times bestseller The Underground Railroad, Whitehead’s THE NICKEL BOYS, which won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, brilliantly dramatizes another strand of American history through the story of two boys sentenced to a hellish reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida. Based on the real story of a reform school that operated for 111 years and warped the lives of thousands of children, this book is a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers.
