Help us kick off Black History Month!
For this month’s Brown Bag, Margaret Koch reviews Twelve Years a Slave by Solomon Northup at noon in the community rooms.
“Twelve Years a Slave is the story of Solomon Northup, an African American who was born free in New York in the early 1800s. In 1841, Solomon Northup was captured and forced into slavery for a period of 12 years. “Twelve Years A Slave” is a captivating narrative of the life of freedom and slavery experienced by one African American man prior to the American Civil War. The book is detailed in its account of life on a cotton and sugar plantation and the daily routine of slave life during the first part of the 19th century.”
Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of The Friends of the Library
And please join us after the review for a matinee showing of Solomon Northup’s Odyssey. Comfy seating and popcorn will be provided in the Reading Alcove in the back of the library.
