Registration is required; call the Langston Centre at (423) 434-5785 to register and learn more. A few copies of The Color of Water will be available to the first registrants who sign up. 

"The Color of Water touches readers of all colors as a vivid portrait of growing up, a haunting meditation on race and identity, and a lyrical valentine to a mother from her son" (Riverhead Books, 2006). 

Seekers Book Club is a monthly book discussion group that reads classic and contemporary works by African American authors. The series is a partnership between Johnson City Public Library and the Langston Centre.
