featuring Lauren Jarvis, Assistant Professor of History
A National Book Critics Circle Award Winner and one of the New York Times Book Review’s Best Books of the Year
“[A] knockout of a novel about immigration, American dreams, the power of first love, and the shifting meanings of skin color. . . A marvel.”—NPR
“A cerebral and utterly transfixing epic. . . Americanah is superlative at making clear just how isolating it can be to live far away from home. . . Unforgettable.”—The Boston Globe
“Superb . . . Americanah is that rare thing in contemporary literary fiction: a lush, big-hearted love story that also happens to be a piercingly funny social critique.”—Vogue
“Witheringly trenchant and hugely empathetic . . . a novel that holds the discomfiting realities of our times fearlessly before us. . . A steady-handed dissection of the universal human experience.”—The New York Times Book Review
Meeting Dates: Tuesdays, October 24 and 31, 2023
