Congratulations to Colson Whitehead, 2016 National Book Award Winner in Fiction

Congratulations to Colson Whitehead on winning the 2016 National Book Award for his incredible novel, "The Underground Railroad." I listened to the audiobook on a cross-country trip with my daughter, and Whitehead's alternate universe gave us an opening to talk about the ugly history of slavery, racism and genocide.
