Medora’s Book Club featuring The Life and Times of Hannah Crafts

February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PST


On February 6, Medora’s Book Club explores The Life and Times of Hannah Craft, a novel that pieces together the story of America’s First Black Woman Novelist, Hannah Crafts.

In 1857, a young black woman escaped enslavement from a North Carolina plantation, fleeing to a farm in New York. In hiding, she worked on a manuscript that would make her famous long after her death. The novel, The Bondwoman’s Narrative, was first published in 2002 to great acclaim, but the author’s identity remained unknown. Over a decade later, Professor Gregg Hecimovich unraveled the mystery of the author’s name and, in The Life and Times of Hannah Crafts, he finally tells her story.

Admission is $50 and includes an autographed copy of the book.

Space is limited. Reservations are required.
