Adelaide Festival says

Celebrated American novelist Colson Whitehead comes to Adelaide with his 2017 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Underground Railroad.

This magnificent novel tells the story of a young slave, Cora's desperate journey to escape from a cotton plantation in Georgia on the eve of the American Civil War. Her escape is via the legendary, albeit desperately risky, Underground Railroad, here imagined as a secret network of tracks and tunnels underneath the American South, a journey that promises freedom.

Join him for a conversation about history, his early career and what it's like to be selected for Oprah's Book Club.

WHERE: Scott Theatre, The University of Adelaide
HOW MUCH: Adult $25+bf
