The Sleeping Car Porter (Violet Hour Book Club)
11 November at 15:00 – 16:30 EST
Join us for the next meeting of the Violet Hour Book Club, a reading group devoted to classic and contemporary works of LGBTQ literature. The book we will be discussing is The Sleeping Car Porter (2022) by Suzette Mayr, winner of the 2022 Giller Prize. The Sleeping Car Porter brings to life an important part of Black history in North America, from the perspective of a queer man living in a culture that renders him invisible in two ways. Affecting, imaginative, and visceral enough that you’ll feel the rocking of the train, The Sleeping Car Porter is a stunning accomplishment.
