Homegoing

Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 1:00-2:00 PM

Join Bogart Bookies, the monthly Bogart Library book club! Copies of the book available at the library. July's book is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.

"With breathtaking scope, Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the slave traders of the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the Asantes’ struggle against British colonialism to the first stirrings of the American Civil War, from the jazz of twentieth-century Harlem to the sparkling shores of modern Ghana. Yaa Gyasi’s extraordinary novel illuminates slavery’s troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed—and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation."

Ecology of a Cracker Childhood

Tuesday, July 2, 2019, 1:00-2:00 PM

Join Bogart Bookies, the monthly Bogart Library book club! Copies of the book available at the library. July's book is Ecology of a Cracker Childhood by Janisse Ray.

"Ray grew up in a junkyard along U.S. Highway 1, hidden from Florida-bound travelers by hulks of old cars. In language at once colloquial, elegiac, and informative, Ray redeems her home and her people, while also cataloging the source of her childhood hope: the Edenic longleaf pine forests, where orchids grow amid wiregrass at the feet of widely spaced, lofty trees. Today, the forests exist in fragments, cherished and threatened, and the South of her youth is gradually being overtaken by golf courses and suburban development. A contemporary classic, Ecology of a Cracker Childhood is a clarion call to protect the cultures and ecologies of every childhood."
