We generallly meet on the third week of the month at two convenient times and venues: Evening Zoom on Thursday at 7 p.m. and Daytime in person at 1 p.m. (outside in the warmer months, weather permitting). You can switch from one meeting to another or skip a month...you are always welcome as long as we have enough room. Registration is required.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A New York Times bestseller from the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Underground Railroad" and "The Nickel Boys," a gloriously entertaining novel of heists, shakedowns, and rip-offs with a furniture salesman as the hero, set in Harlem in the 1960s.
“A a fiendishly clever romp, a heist novel that’s also a morality play about respectability politics, a family comedy disguised as a noir…Harlem Shuffle reads like a book whose author had enormous fun writing it. The dialogue crackles and sparks; the zippy heist plot twists itself in one showy misdirection after another. Most impressive of all is lovable family-man Ray, whose relentless ambition drives the plot forward while his glib salesman’s patter keeps you guessing about his true intentions. This book is a blast that will make you think, and what could be better than that?”
