Restless Books and the Jones Library are joining forces to bring a transcontinental virtual meeting of book people to you this month!  Facilitated by Restless Books publisher, literature scholar, and Amherst College professor Ilan Stavans, May's virtual book group discussion will explore Passing by Nella Larsen.

Follow this link for more information about the book, the author, and to register for the book discussions.  (You must register separately for each session.)

The 2-part discussion will be held online on Thursday, May 14 and Thursday, May 21 at 8:00 pm EDT.  Information about how to connect with the discussion via Zoom will be sent to you after registration.

Copies of the e-book can be purchased from Restless Books or other source.  Free copies of the book are also available at the Hathi Trust (just click on “Full View”  to access a scanned PDF copy) or from Open Library (in a variety of formats).
