The Underground Railroad
by Colson Whitehead
Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction and the National Book Award, Colson Whitehead chronicles young slave Cora’s harrowing journey to freedom. Her ferocious will to live — fueled by the promise of finding a way out of her hellish environs through a secret, underground network of tracks and tunnels — drives her from town to town, sometimes only steps ahead and minutes away from capture. Whitehead delivers a page-turner that the Pulitzer board cited for its brilliant narrative that “seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of present day.”
The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds
by Michael Lewis
Masterful storyteller and New York Times-bestselling author Michael Lewis (Flash Boys, Boomerang and Liar’s Poker) — known for his keen ability to break down complicated, real-world subjects into easy-to-understand and riveting stories — is like the business professor everyone wishes they’d had. This time, he takes on the story of Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, who invented the field of behavioral economics with their Nobel Prize-Winning theory about the mind. Together, they altered our perception of reality.
