“This book has kept me up at night, had my heart in my throat, almost afraid to turn the next page”
—Oprah Winfrey
“He has told a story essential to our understanding of the American past and the American present”
—The New York Times

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.
