On January 31st we held a Virtual Book Discussion, cosponsored by Greenwich Pen Women, for The Warmth of Other Suns, by Isabel Wilkerson, facilitated by Greenwich Pen Women members Lynn Garelick and Adrienne Reedy.
View the event recording here:
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration, is a masterwork by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Isabel Wilkerson. This beautifully written masterwork, by the bestselling author of Caste, chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: The Great Migration, which was the decades-long exodus of Black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. These Black Americans often left under the cover of night, leaving their sharecropper tools in the fields, their future plans and whereabouts a mystery to those they left behind.
