An NEA BIG READ Program
Beloved by Toni Morrison
Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, this spellbinding New York Times bestseller transforms history into a powerful story. Sethe, the novel's protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio, but eighteen years later she is still not free. She has too many memories of Sweet Home, the beautiful farm where so many hideous things happened. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved.
