Tonight starting at 7:00 pm, Dr. Eva Tettenborn, an associate professor from Penn State Scranton, will be leading a discussion on the book Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.
“Homegoing is the debut historical fiction novel by Yaa Gyasi, published in 2016. Each chapter in the novel follows a different descendant of an Asante woman named Maame, starting with her two daughters, who are half-sisters, separated by circumstance: Effia marries James Collins, the British governor in charge of Cape Coast Castle, while her half-sister Esi is held captive in the dungeons below. Subsequent chapters follow their children and following generations.”
