Book Club: Somewhere in Time historical fiction

Monday, 6/27/2022
7:30 - 8:30

If you enjoy some history in your fiction, spend an hour hashing out the details of—and the history behind—this month’s novel, Robert Jones, Jr.’s The Prophets. This award-winning debut novel tells the story of the forbidden union between two enslaved young men on a Deep South plantation in the antebellum South, the refuge they find in each other and a betrayal that threatens their existence.
