Saturday, September 26 | 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. EDT
Alumni, parents, and friends are invited to attend the September D.C. Oles Book Club, hosted on Zoom. We will be reading The Yellow House by Sarah Broom.
Winner of the 2019 National Book Award for Nonfiction
“The title of Sarah M. Broom’s debut memoir refers to the east New Orleans home her mother bought in 1961. There, Broom was raised alongside her 11 siblings in a part of the city that became riddled with crime and poverty. In The Yellow House, Broom traces back a hundred years worth of her family history and the hardships they faced. She pays particular attention to Hurricane Katrina, which completely destroyed the family’s house. In its aftermath, Broom examines what it really means to rebuild roots and how to define a home.”
