“How Have I Not Read This?” Book Club Discussion of Homegoing featuring Yaa Gyasi and Jordan Pavlin.

Join Yaa Gyasi and her editor, Knopf Editorial Director Jordan Pavlin, for a live, virtual discussion of Gyasi’s best-selling, award-winning debut novel, Homegoing.

Published in 2016, Yaa Gyasi’s novel Homegoing earned its place as the most notable literary debut of the year, winning the PEN/Hemingway Award and the NBCC’s John Leonard Award, and becoming a finalist for both the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize. The novel’s fans include Zadie Smith (“Spectacular”), Ta-Nehisi Coates (“an inspiration”), Trevor Noah (“a beautiful story”), and Roxane Gay (“I could not put this book down”). A major bestseller upon publication, Homegoing is now back on the New York Times bestseller list four years later.
