BOOK CLUB

Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 1:30-3:00 pm at the Guilford Free Library.  

The book for October is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.

A novel of breathtaking sweet and emotional power that traces three hundred years in Ghana and along the way also becomes a truly great American novel. Extraordinary for its exquisite language, it implacable sorrow, its soaring beauty, and for its monumental portrait of the forces that shape families and nations, Homegoing heralds the arrival of a major new voice in contemporary fiction. penguinrandomhouselibrary.com/tag
