An Evening with Isabel Wilkerson
Pulitzer Prize winner and National Humanities Medal recipient Isabel Wilkerson is the author of The New York Times best-selling books "Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents" and "The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration." A gifted storyteller, Wilkerson captivates audiences with the universal human story of migration and reinvention, as well as the enduring search for the American dream. Wilkerson’s latest book, "Caste: The Origins of our Discontents," published in August 2020 to critical acclaim, with Dwight Garner of The New York Times calling it, “An instant American classic” and Oprah choosing it for her monthly book club pick. Picked as a Time’s 2020 must-read book, the book examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how a hierarchy of social divisions still defines our lives today. Wilkerson brings the past’s complexities to vivid life through her passionate research and her profound gift for connecting with audiences of all backgrounds.
