About the Event
Stunning novels about race, love, family, inheritance, choice and consequence.
In the #1 New York Times best-selling The Vanishing Half, Brit Bennett weaves together multiple strands and generations of a family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, in a story that considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person’s decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins. In Bryan Washington’s Memorial, Mike and Benson are young men who find their world turned inside out as they find themselves living apart and forced to discover their own truths.
