Join us on March 7, 2017 at 7 pm as Amherst professor Judith Frank discusses Edward P. Jones’ 2003 Pulitzer-winning novel The Known World, described as “a masterpiece that deserves a place in the American literary canon,” and considers what its unusual approach to characterization can tell us about slavery, personhood, and novel-reading.
Books are available to read in advance, but are not required.
This program is underwritten by: Carole and Jeff Gaddis
