Watch a live video stream as Alison Stewart, host of WNYC’s All Of It, continues her virtual book club series with award-winning author Colson Whitehead. They’ll discuss his most recent novel, The Nickel Boys, described by the Pulitzer board of judges as “a spare and devastating exploration of abuse at a reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida that is ultimately a powerful tale of human perseverance, dignity and redemption.”
And don’t miss a special performance by composer and musician Jon Batiste, bandleader for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
