    The National Writers Series is pleased to welcome Pulitzer Prize winner Geraldine Brooks, who will discuss her latest book Horse: A Reckoning of Racial Inequality in America. The novel spans nearly 170 years of American history, stretching from antebellum Kentucky to Washington, DC. Characters include Jess, a Smithsonian scientist from Australia, and Theo, a Nigerian-American art historian, who find themselves unexpectedly connected through their shared interest in a horse—one studying the stallion’s bones for clues to his power and endurance, the other uncovering the lost history of the unsung Black horsemen who were critical to his racing success.
