Sci-Friday Book Group discusses The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin 

This group now meets in person at The Poisoned Pen bookstore and virtually on Zoom. Please email pat@poisonedpen.com for an invitation. We welcome new members.

N.K. Jemisin. The City We Became  

Three-time Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin crafts her most incredible novel yet, a "glorious" story of culture, identity, magic, and myths in contemporary New York City.
 
In Manhattan, a young grad student gets off the train and realizes he doesn't remember who he is, where he's from, or even his own name. But he can sense the beating heart of the city, see its history, and feel its power.
 
In the Bronx, a Lenape gallery director discovers strange graffiti scattered throughout the city, so beautiful and powerful it's as if the paint is literally calling to her.
 
In Brooklyn, a politician and mother finds she can hear the songs of her city, pulsing to the beat of her Louboutin heels.
 
And they're not the only ones.
