PM Book Group: "Black Cake" by Charmaine Wilkerson
Thursday, September 08, 2022, 07:30pm - 08:30pm

The book group will discuss the family saga “Black Cake” by Charmaine Wilkerson.  Two estranged siblings delve into their mother’s hidden past—and how it all connects to her traditional Caribbean black cake—in this character-driven, multigenerational story that was a Read with Jenna book club selection.  A masterful storyteller, Wilkerson uses one Caribbean American family's extraordinary tale to probe universal issues of identity and how the lives we live and the choices we make leave a trail of potential consequences that pass down through generations.

Copies of the book will be available to check out at the front desk one month before the discussion. To join the book group, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., call (908) 665-0311 x4, or stop by the reference desk.
