About the Event

This month's book club will feature Erasure by Percival Everett. Attendees are asked to acquire the novella and read it by our meeting date on the 17th so that we can have a facilitated discussion together based on the book. Come ready to chat! This book club meeting will be taking place at Ebony & Ivory Brewing from 6-8 pm. See you there!

Here's the premise:

Protagonist Thelonious "Monk" Ellison, an African American writer, grapples with frustration over the industry's pigeonholing of black authors into certain stereotypes. In response, Monk writes a parody of popular "ghetto fiction", which unexpectedly becomes a hit. Through Monk's journey, the novel explores questions of authenticity, artistic integrity, and the pressures faced by black writers. Erasure stands out for its biting satire and metafictional elements, offering a thought-provoking commentary on race, representation, and the complexities of the literary world.
