Dr. Skip Mason’s Vanishing Black Atlanta Book Club, in partnership with Auburn Avenue Research Library, presents a discussion on The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.
From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, author Brit Bennett delivers a stunning novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black, and one white. This beautifully written yet thought-provoking novel addresses the elephant in the room for many Black families; and that elephant is colorism and its destruction of identity, individuality, self-awareness, self-esteem, and family unity. Visit https://britbennett.com/the-va... for a full overview of the book as well as information on the author.
All are welcome to join Dr. Mason and members of the book club as they openly and transparently explore the novel's various themes. Simply submit an email to email@example.com expressing your desire to join in this conversation and to receive the Zoom meeting link.
