Join Rev. Katherine Stanford for the first three Thursdays in November and explore the New York Times number-one bestseller and nominee for the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize, Brit Bennett’s The Vanishing Half.
Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing. Looking well beyond issues of race, The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person’s decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins.
