Thanks to our friends at UAFS Read This! and the Winthrop Rockefeller Distinguished Lecture Series, Fort Smith is getting ready to welcome author Colson Whitehead to the area. If you haven’t already read THE NICKEL BOYS, now is the time. Bookish will host three book discussions leading up to the February 7th author event. Join us to discuss the Prologue and Part 1 on Tuesday, January 17th. Part 2 on Tuesday, January 24th, and Part 3 on Tuesday, January 31st.
It is such a treat to have Whitehead in the area, so please make plans to support the educators and committee members who worked tirelessly to get a National Book Award winning author to Fort Smith.
