Are you an avid reader of American literature? Then join us for lively discussions about books by American writers, with a focus on contemporary authors! In each of our monthly sessions, we talk about a work of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, or a play.

For Women’s History Month, we are going to discuss Passing, by Nella Larsen. Published during the Harlem Renaissance in 1929, this novella explores the experience of two light-skinned African-American women passing as white. This is a book about friendship, identity, society, and race and we look forward to your questions!

The book was based on the author’s own mixed heritage; she was the daughter of a white Danish mother and a father from the Danish West Indies. A movie based on the book by Rebecca Hall was released by Netflix in November, 2021.
