January 19th – Board Meeting, Book Review & Discussion

The Board Meeting, beginning at noon at the Hadassah Meeting Room, features guest speaker Federation of Jewish Women’s Organizations of Maryland Vice President, Linda Boteach.

undergroundThen, at 1 pm, The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead.  – A National Book Award Winner and #1 New York Times bestseller from Colson Whitehead, is a magnificent tour de force chronicling a young slave’s adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.

In recounting Cora’s story, Mr. Whitehead communicates the horrors of slavery and its toxic legacy rumbling on down the years. At the same time, he memorializes the yearning for freedom that spurs one generation after another to persevere in the search for justice — despite threats and intimidation, despite reversals and efforts to turn back the clock. He has told a story essential to our understanding of the American past and the American present.  (These paragraphs were excerpted from the New York Times book review.)
