Bring your lunch and join us as we discuss this year's One Read runner-up, "The Good Lord Bird" by James McBride. Little Onion, a 12-year-old slave actually named Henry, is mistaken for a girl and forced to flee the Kansas territory with abolitionist John Brown after an altercation with his master. The adventures that follow, told in Onion’s vibrant and singular voice, take us from Bloody Kansas to the doomed raid on Harpers Ferry.
