The Power of Story with Colson Whitehead-Virtual
We are thrilled to welcome two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author Colson Whitehead to our Illinois libraries to discuss storytelling. The #1 New York Times bestselling author of multiple books and a collection of essays, Whitehead is only the fourth writer to win two Pulitzers in the Fiction category (for Underground Railroad in 2018 and The Nickel Boys in 2020). In 2023, President Biden awarded Whitehead a National Endowment for the Humanities Medal.
