A Taste of Ann Katz Festival of Books and Arts Community Reads
A Unity Project Program
Former JCC Indianapolis member, Ben Winters, makes his return to discuss his new nationally acclaimed novel. Set in Indianapolis, Underground Airlines takes place in the present-day, and the world is as we know it: smartphones, social networking and Happy Meals. Save for one thing: the Civil War never occurred. In fact, slavery is still legal in four states labelled “The Hard Four”. From that premise, Winters spins a detective story that forces readers to explore their beliefs about the United States as it is and as it could have been. Ben will speak about his book and its implications for our country.
Underground Airlines received five out of five stars on BarnesandNoble.com and 4/5 stars on Goodreads and Amazon.
The book will be available for purchase at the JCC beginning March 28.
