Selected as the NEA Big Read 2019, Citizen: An American Lyric was the winner of the 2014 National Book Critics Circle award for poetry. The book, written by Jamaican-born author Claudia Rankine, exposes modern American racism with poetry, commentary and visual art. Adrienne Gosselin will facilitate the discussion. Dr. Gosselin is an Associate Professor of English at Cleveland State University where she specializes in African-American Literature and Culture and Black Women's Studies.
Copies of the book will be available at the Bertram Woods Circulation desk one month before the discussion.
