All Over the Page welcomes André Canty

Join André Canty on Monday, February 13 at 6:30 in the Lawson McGhee Library meeting room for a discussion of Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters.

This ground-breaking alternative history follows the journey of a young black man, Victor, who is working as a bounty hunter for the U.S. Marshals Service. However, in this America, the Civil War never occurred and the fugitives Victor is hunting are from the "Hard Four," the four remaining slave states. Sent to Indianapolis to track down a runaway named Jackdaw, Victor is soon drawn into a complicated web of mystery and hidden truths that threaten to rock the foundation of the world he thought he knew.
