Harvard Club of the Palm Beaches
will be discussing (via Zoom)
by Geraldine Brooks
Wednesday, January 10, 2024
(Zoom information will be sent in advance)
This historical novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks is based on the true story of the record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington. Drawing on the disciplines of art and science, the book skillfully jumps between mid-19 th century Kentucky, mid-20 th century New York, and the recent past in Washington, D.C. Along the way, Brooks examines slavery, racism, animal abuse, and injustice. Horse is a fast-paced narrative that pushes the reader to consider what has – and has not – changed in America.
