Black Voices Book Club

Please join Black Voices Book Club on Monday, July 18, to discuss Lalita Tademy's novel Cane River. This historical novel explores the achievements of Tademy's great-great-great-great grandmother, Elisabeth, born a slave in 1799. Tademy abandoned her lucrative career in the corporate world to spend years researching her roots. She traced her family roots to a medium-sized Creole plantation in Cane River, Louisiana. There, Elisabeth lived with her four children, cooking for the Master.

The book club meets the third Monday night of the month at 7 p.m., on the second floor of the library. The book club focuses on fiction by African-American, Caribbean and African authors. You can join the club at any time. To learn more, please become our fan on Facebook by searching for "Black Voices Book Club - Juanita E. Thornton/Shepherd Park Library." You can also visit the library, or call 202-541-6100 to become a member.

See you on Monday, July 18.
