If you’re looking for a sweeping novel to sink into this fall, there’s nothing better than a multi-generational saga. In our November Spotlight Pick, The Travelers by Regina Porter, the lives of two families—one Black and one white—are united by marriage. As the story spans decades and generations, we watch the characters’ lives play out with humor and pathos.
You’ll meet an unforgettable cast, from soldiers to attorneys to waitresses, and their stories reach from 1950s New York to ’70s Berlin to the first year of Barack Obama’s presidency. You’ll be left with so much to discuss about what it means to be an American today—and the ways we show up in each others’ lives.
Join us for a Zoom Happy Hour on Monday, November 23 at 7:30pm ET, with a special guest appearance from author Regina Porter. There’s so much to discuss about life’s alternate paths and the truths we bury deep in our hearts.
