PASO ROBLES, CA – January 23, 2023 On Wednesday, February 22, 6-7 pm in the Library Conference Room, the public is invited to meet and discuss Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad, a chronicle of a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.
As Whitehead brilliantly re-creates the terrors of the antebellum era, he weaves in the saga of our nation. The Underground Railroad is both the gripping tale of one woman's will to escape the horrors of bondage—and a powerful meditation on the history we all share.
