Looking for an engaging book to read over the Holiday Break? Something to enjoy with a warm drink by the fire? We invite you to join the CDS Parent Book Club virtually on Tuesday, January 25th, as they explore Harlem Shuffle by two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author Colson Whitehead. Author of The Underground and The Nickel Boys.
Harlem Shuffle is an entertaining novel of heists, shakedowns and rip-offs in Harlem during the 1960s. To his customers and neighbours, he is an upstanding salesman of reasonably priced furniture … to others he is known as a decendent of uptown hoods and crooks.
Harlem Shuffle is a family saga that is masquerading as a crime novel, but at the same time a hilarious play and a social novel about race and power in the 1960s.
Please join us virtually on Tuesday, January 25th at 7:00 pm. We ask that you let us know your intent to join so that we can plan for numbers and share the Zoom link. Our Senior School Librarian, Melissa Rutledge, will be moderating the book review.
