Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson will speak about her highly praised and provocative new book, Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, at 7 p.m. Friday via Zoom as part of the Atlanta History Center’s Virtual Talk program. Wilkerson’s book explores how the undertow of caste is experienced daily in American culture and has set up unnatural human divisions. Wilkerson has taught at Emory University and her debut book, The Warmth of Other Suns, was awarded the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. The event is free, but a book purchase from A Cappella Books from the link above is required for access.

Tickets range from $20 to VIP tables for $330.
