Colson Whitehead - The Nickel Boys

Pulitzer Prize-winning author speaks about his new novel at Angelico Hall

Based on the real story of a reform school in Florida that operated for one hundred and eleven years and warped the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers.

“America’s Storyteller. A book that will further cement his place in the pantheon of influential American writers.” —Time Magazine

Colson Whitehead is the author of nine books of fiction and non-fiction, including The Underground Railroad, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller and won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. A recipient of MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowships, he lives in New York City.
