    Date: Tue, July 16, 7 pm – 9 pm
    Milkman is a story of the way inaction can have enormous repercussions, in a time when the wrong flag, wrong religion, or even a sunset can be subversive. Told with ferocious energy and sly, wicked humor, Milkman establishes Anna Burns as one of the most consequential voices of our day. This book was the winner of the 2018 Man Booker Prize for fiction.
