Please join us as we discuss this year's Read Me Treasure Valley selection, The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, which won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Light refreshments will be served.

"Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. In Whitehead’s ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor—engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar embark on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom." - Amazon.com
