WHAT WE'RE READING // Washington Black by Esi Edugyan

Born into slavery on a sugar plantation in Barbardos in the early 19th century, Washington Black is taken from the fields to assist his master's brother in building a flying machine. He discovers a passion for science and talent for observation that soars with the flying machine out of the island and into new lives far from where he grew up. Wash's story is one of brutality but also transcendence and the magic of curiosity and exploration.
