Description

The Open Book Club is a monthly curated book club that focuses on BIPOC voices and inclusive American history through fiction and nonfiction narratives. The book selection for August is "Song of Solomon" by Toni Morrison.

"Song of Solomon" follows the life of Macon “Milkman” Dead III, an African-American man living in Michigan, from birth to adulthood. The novel won the National Book Critics Circle Award, was chosen for Oprah Winfrey’s popular book club, and was cited by the Swedish Academy in awarding Morrison the 1993 Nobel Prize in literature. In 1998, the Radcliffe Publishing Course named it the 25th best English-language novel of the 20th century.
