From the venue:

A recent Oprah's Book Club pick, Colson Whitehead's The Underground Railroad tells the story of Cora, a young slave girl living on a Georgia cotton plantation. When she's convinced to escape, Cora encounters the stark reality of the Underground Railroad – but Whitehead's version is a below-Earth system complete with engineers, conductors, and tracks. Whitehead will discuss his book and sign copies. Guests are an additional $10.
