Book of the Month: The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
Our December Book of the Month is Colson Whitehead’s bestselling novel, The Underground Railroad, winner of the 2016 National Book Award. Deemed by the New York Times, “a story essential to our understanding of the American past and the American present,” The Underground Railroad chronicles a young slave’s desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.
“Audiobook fans will certainly not be disappointed by versatile actor Turpin’s performance of Whitehead’s powerful historical novel, which tells the story of Cora, a teenage slave girl who lives on a cotton plantation in 1850s Georgia.”
