Dear members,

For our February reading, we would like to propose The Underground Railroad, published in Protected content , as the sixth novel by American author Colson Whitehead.

The alternate history novel tells the story of Cora and Caesar, two slaves in the southeastern United States during the 19th century, who make a bid for freedom from their Georgia plantations by following the Underground Railroad, which the novel depicts as primarily a rail transport system in addition to a series of safe houses and secret routes.

The Underground Railroad was a critical and commercial success, hitting the bestseller lists and winning several notable prizes.

Join us for another great discussion, welcoming also our two new co-consuls Fatima and Naveen !
