Literary Classic for April - Native Son by Richard Wright

Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic. Set in Chicago in the 1930s, Wright's powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America.

 

Join us for the discussion of this classic and lunch afterward.

 

Hope to see you there!
