Published on Friday, January 31, 2014 - 2:42pm
The February selection of the Chevy Chase Library's Book Club is Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson.
In this epic, beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost 6 million people changed the face of America.
The book club will meet on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. Copies of the book are available on a display near the information desk at the branch.
