Description Bestselling author Colson Whitehead (Zone One) comes to BAM to discuss his new novel, The Underground Railroad—a sweeping narrative of pre-Civil War slavery that rockets from past to present through one woman’s escape from the horrors of bondage. A MacArthur grant awardee and reviewer for New York Times and The New Yorker, Whitehead shares the insights and inspirations that shaped this shattering reflection on the history we all share.
