Dive into the rich tapestry of American history in "Horse: A Novel," where Pulitzer Prize winner Gwendolyn Brooks weaves a compelling narrative that transcends time and disciplines. Scheduled for release on January 16, 2024, this novel is a profound exploration of racial justice through the interconnected lives of its characters across centuries. From the Kentucky fields of 1850 where an enslaved groom named Jarret and a bay foal share a transcendent bond, to the bustling art scene of 1954 New York, and finally to a discovery in 2019 Washington, D.C. that links a Smithsonian scientist and an art historian with the legacy of Lexington, a record-breaking thoroughbred, the novel spans a vast emotional and historical landscape. "Horse" is not just a story about an animal but a deep reflection on human connections, racial inequalities, and the pursuit of dignity. Acknowledged with prestigious awards such as the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, this novel is an essential read for college students and all seeking to understand the nuanced fabric of American society. Reflect on how the past informs our present and consider what lessons we might carry forward.
