D&I Book Club: The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson at Madison Plaza Lobby

Thursday, May 21, 2020

Each discussion takes place in the Madison Plaza lounge at 920 Madison Ave in the food court dining area. You may bring a lunch or purchase a lunch in the plaza. You are encouraged to attend even if you do not have the opportunity to finish the book prior to the discussion.

From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America. Wilkerson compares this epic migration to the migrations of other peoples in history. She interviewed more than a thousand people, and gained access to new data and official records, to write this definitive and vividly dramatic account of how these American journeys unfolded, altering our cities, our country, and ourselves.  With stunning historical detail, Wilkerson tells this story through the lives of three unique individuals: Ida Mae Gladney, George Starling, and Robert Foster.
