Perspectives Book Group - The Nickel Boys

Presenter: Kiki Berk

As part of New Hampshire Humanities' Perspectives Book Groups, we're reading The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead.

Author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead, brilliantly dramatizes another strand of American history through the story of two boys sentenced to a hellish reform school in 1960s Florida. Based on the history of a real reform school in Florida that operated for one hundred and eleven years and warped and destroyed the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative by a great American novelist whose work is essential to understanding the current reality of the United States.

Pre-registration is required to receive the book prior to the discussion.

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of bringing the humanities to your community!
