Book Club - Homegoing

Join the South Novato Library as we launch our new Social Justice Book Club.

In Homegoing, Yaa Gyasi illuminates the legacy of slavery through the interwoven stories of eight generations. “So when you study history, you must always ask yourself, Whose story am I missing?”

From the Gold Coast to Mississippi and Harlem, Gyasi asks us to consider “how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.” Join us for a discussion of this award-winning novel.

START READING
* Pick up books at the South Novato Library. Or, call us to have library staff place your copy on hold. NOTE: Book club sets are not visible in the library catalog for direct holds.

* Whenever possible, we will have Large Type, Spanish and audio copies in addition to paperbacks.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Ghana, eighteenth century: two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and sold into slavery.

Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. 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.
