Colson Whitehead: The Underground Railroad

September 29, 2016 – Segment 1 colson-whitehead_0

We begin the show with my interview with author Colson Whitehead about his new book The Underground Railroad. Whitehead has written six novels and two books of non-fiction, and in 2002 he received a MacArthur Fellowship. The Underground Railroad was a selection of Oprah’s Book Club 2.0, and was also chosen by President Barack Obama as one of five books on his summer vacation reading list.
