American Classics II

Events

September 8

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Main Library – Our popular book discussion series returns with The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin.

Baldwin lived a considerable portion of his life abroad, to extend himself as a writer and to alleviate the stifling effects of life as a black man in the U.S. He wrote The Fire Next Time as a long polemical essay on the black person’s search for identity of self and race in American society. His vociferous spirit is couched in luxurious prose.

Convened by Alice Crozier, Professor of English Emerita, Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Free and open to the public.
