Go Big Read Book Discussion of Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi

Go Big Read Book Discussion of Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi

Community Rooms A and B Combined
Wednesday, Sep 29, 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Join us for a discussion of the 2021-22 UW-Madison Go Big Read selection, Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the library up to one month before the discussion. 

About the book: Gifty is a PhD candidate in neuroscience studying reward-seeking behavior in mice and the neural circuits of depression and addiction. Her brother, Nana, was a gifted high school athlete who died of a heroin overdose after an ankle injury left him hooked on OxyContin. Her suicidal mother is living in her bed. Gifty is determined to discover the scientific basis for the suffering she sees all around her. But even as she turns to the hard sciences to unlock the mystery of her family’s loss, she finds herself hungering for her childhood faith and grappling with the church in which she was raised. It’s a moving portrait of a family of Ghanaian immigrants in a novel about faith, science, religion, love.
