Urban Life Experience Book Discussion Series
Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters, Saturday, December 3, 12 p.m. | Wilson
Join the Book Discussion Series at Wilson Library for their next read. Underground Airlines is an alternate history, set in a present-day United States where the Civil War never happened. In this reality, there are still “Slave” and “Free” states, and of course, there are still runaways – and fugitive slave catchers. Unsurprisingly, there are also still abolitionists, and secret networks devoted to helping escapees make it to freedom.
