The Power of Story with Colson Whitehead

September 6th, 2023 - 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Pulitzer Prize winning #1 New York Times bestselling author Colson Whitehead will be presenting! Online Live Event.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Underground Railroad, The Nickel Boys, Harlem Shuffle, The Noble Hustle, Zone One, Sag Harbor, The Intuitionist, John Henry Days, Apex Hides the Hurt, and a collection of essays, Whitehead is only the fourth writer to win two Pulitzers in the Fiction category (for Underground Railroad in 2017 and The Nickel Boys in 2020). His highly anticipated latest, Crook Manifesto, is a darkly funny tale of a city under siege, but also a sneakily searching portrait of the meaning of family.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events.
