The Great Books Affinity Group meets regularly the 2nd Monday of the month at 10:00 am including during the summer. Great Books is discussing Barracoon: The Story of the Last Black Cargo by Zora Neale Hurston on Monday, June 10. Based on the author’s interviews in 1927 with Cudjo Lewis, it is the story of the last living survivor of the last slave ship to land on American shores. The book initially could not find a publisher and languished in a vault until 2018.
Looking ahead, Great Books will be discussing A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith on Monday, July 8.
