Online Discussion - Sag Harbor by Colson Whitehead

Date and Time: March 16, 2021, 7:00 PM CT

Location: Friends of the Baldwin City Library, 800 7th St, PO Box 565, Baldwin City
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Growing Up American
Discussion Leader: Edgar Tidwell

Benji explains the central terms of his summers away: "First you had to settle the question of out." The "out" is out from school, out for vacation, and out to Sag Harbor, but for the African American elites who made the resort their vacation home, the ins and outs of it were more complex. In Sag Harbor, an enclave for an emerging black professional class, fifteen-year-old Benji must try to come to terms with growing up, with African Americanness, and with American popular culture.

This book discussion will be conducted online. Contact the library for more details!
