In November, Micah member Professor Gayle Wald led us in a fascinating discussion of Paul Beatty’s novel The Sellout. Many of those present requested another session with Professor Wald on another book. On Saturday, April 4, 2020 at 5:00 pm, Professor Wald will lead us in a conversation on Friday Black by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah.
This collection of short stories, selected for us by Professor Wald, would seem to be an excellent follow up to The Sellout, as the author of Friday Black explores themes surrounding black identity as it relates to a range of contemporary social issues. Adjei-Brenyah has been named one of the “5 Under 35 Authors” for 2018, by the National Book Foundation.
We encourage you to mark the date and read the book. The Micah library will have a few copies available.
