Book of the Little Axe Discussion
Tuesday, September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
As part of the nationwide Libraries Transform Book Pick program, Book of the Little Axe by Lauren Francis-Sharma is now available as an ebook for a two-week period using Libby, without waitlists or holds. We invite you to join us for a virtual discussion of this book via Zoom. Advanced registration is required (see form below).
Book of the Little Axe spans decades and oceans from Trinidad to the American West during the tumultuous days of warring colonial powers and westward expansion. In a starred review, Booklist said Francis-Sharma “offers fascinating characters across the broad sweep of the American continent at a time of great tumult, warring colonial powers, the spread of slavery, and expansion West” and described the story as a “compelling saga of family bonds, ambitions, and desires, all subject to the vagaries of powerful historical forces.”
