Join us for a librarian-led discussion about 'Homegoing’ by Yaa Gyasi.
“A riveting kaleidoscopic debut novel and the beginning of a major career: Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing is a novel about race, history, ancestry, love and time, charting the course of two sisters torn apart in 18th century Africa through to the present day. Stretching from the tribal wars of Ghana to slavery and Civil War in America, from the coal mines in the north to the Great Migration to the streets of 20th century Harlem, Yaa Gyasi has written a modern masterpiece, a novel that moves through histories and geographies and - with outstanding economy and force - captures the intricacies of the troubled yet hopeful human spirit.” – Publisher
