Come read with us!
This month we'll be reading "The Last White Man" by Mohsin Hamid. A young man named Anders wakes up to find his white skin transformed a "deep and undeniable brown." Soon white inhabitants of an unnamed town follow suit. Through Kafkaesque plot and racial allegory, Hamid discusses identity, white supremacy and social justice, and trauma.
