Meet Author Brit Bennett

Spend an evening at home with New York Times bestselling author Brit Bennett. She will discuss her new novel
The Vanishing Half about identical twin sisters who were once close, but ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds. Even though the sisters grow up together in a small, Black southern community, one sister eventually chooses to live with her Black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for a White woman and her husband knows nothing of her past. The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person’s decisions, desires and expectations. For adults.
