Racial Justice Book Club and Discussion – Open to All

The Last White Man: A Novel by Mohsin Hamid

Beginning Sunday September 25, 2022

9:00-9:50 AM Congregational Care Room

This book powerfully uplifts our capacity for empathy and the transcendence over bigotry, fear, and anger it can achieve. One morning, a man wakes up to find himself transformed. Overnight, Anders’s skin has turned dark, and the reflection in the mirror seems a stranger to him. Soon, reports of similar events begin to surface. Some see the transformations as the long-dreaded overturning of the established order that must be resisted to a bitter end. In many, a sense of profound loss and unease wars with profound love. As the bond between Anders and Oona deepens, change takes on a different shading: a chance at a kind of rebirth–an opportunity to see ourselves, face to face, anew. Please read Part One in advance of the first meeting (book is available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and other vendors, and also on Kindle) and register here .
