Lit Reads Book Club: The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead

Our next Lit Reads title, The Nickel Boys carries on the tradition of the southern literary Gothic in this wrenching, brutal new novel. Following Elwood Curtis, a young African-American student, The Nickel Boys tells the story of a harsh reform school in Florida, set against the backdrop of the Jim Crow. Building on true events, this bold, blazing novel, exploring racism and the brutality of a unjust system, is necessary reading for the contemporary world.
