Join our host David Hartman and fellow Columbia alumni for a virtual book club to discuss Horse by Geraldine Brooks; a selection from our book club Elizabeth Shapiro. An in-person book club in Chicago also discusses the book on 9/28.
A discarded painting in a junk pile, a skeleton in an attic, and the greatest racehorse in American history: from these strands, a Pulitzer Prize winner braids a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American history. Based on the remarkable true story of the record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington, Horse is a novel of art and science, love and obsession, and our unfinished reckoning with racism. Winner of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award. “Brooks’ chronological and cross-disciplinary leaps are thrilling.” —The New York Times Book Review
