January Study Group: Contemporary Literature by African-American Writers
This study group will highlight the short-story craftsmanship of such exceptional writers as Edward P. Jones, Chimamanda Adichie, Roxane Gay, and James McBride; plunge into the creative, edgy writing of Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah; and explore provocative essays by such outstanding social and political commentators as Ta-Nahesi Coates, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Phoebe Robinson.
Study group leader and retired attorney Ellen Siegler has led this course for five years (each year introducing new writers) winning rave reviews for “terrific class discussions,” “skillful facilitating,” and “great reading material.”
