In The Nickel Boys, his remarkable follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize-winning and #1 New York Times bestseller, The Underground Railroad, Whitehead dramatizes another strand of American history through the story of two boys sentenced to a hellish reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida. The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers. Hear Whitehead read from his new book and discuss with the audience the ideas and aims of his latest work. Colson Whitehead is the author of nine books of fiction and non-fiction, including The Underground Railroad, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. A recipient of MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowships, he lives in New York City.
