COLSON WHITEHEAD ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD
Listen to Colson Whitehead HERE.
Our guest this week is Colson Whitehead. His latest novel, The Underground Railroad, chronicles a young slave’s adventures, from the hellish Georgia plantation where she is born, through many treacherous Southern states with varying barbaric laws, towards freedom in the north. This is an extraordinary, brutal, and challenging read. Oprah just picked it for her famous book club, so I suggest you go get it right away so you can be part of the conversation.
