The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers at Diesel A Bookstore in LarkspurThe Larkspur Book Club Pioneers meet to discuss Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi on Wednesday, November 29th at 6:30pm.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Ghana, eighteenth century: two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and sold into slavery.
Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi's extraordinary novel illuminates slavery's troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed--and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
