Description

Join the Schomburg Center and Countee Cullen Library for the Schomburg Reading Circle discussion on Erica Dunbar’s Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge. This book is part of our Reading Slavery series selected by Dr. Michelle Commander, Associate Director and Curator of the The Lapidus Center for the Historical Analysis of Transatlantic Slavery.

Come prepared to journey with Dr. Commander through the book's themes and topics, and to discuss what intrigued you most about the author's work with your fellow Schomburg Reading Circle book club members and librarians at Countee Cullen Library.

Schomburg Reading Circle books are available for purchase in the Schomburg Shop, and can be checked out at your local NYPL branch. Reserve your copy of Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge in the NYPL catalog.

All Schomburg Reading Circle discussions will take place at Countee Culleen Library, 104 W. 136th Street, right around the corner from the Schomburg Center.
