Bexley Public Library Holds Discussion On Colson Whitehead Novel
via Bexley Public Library Facebook

Thursday evening, from 7 to 8 30 p.m., join OSU anthropology professor Jeffery H. Cohen as he discusses Colson Whitehead’s novel ‘Zone One’ and the significance of zombies in contemporary American culture.

‘Zone One’, Whitehead’s sixth novel, blends both horror and literary fiction to create a narrative exploring humanity and the concept of survival. It follows the protagonist ‘Mark Spitz’, as he sweeps through a post-apocalyptic New York landscape, hunting the undead in an effort to take back the city.

Another notable work by the author is the National Book Award winning novel ‘The Underground Railroad’, which follows two Georgia slaves, escaping for freedom on the underground railroad as it eventually transforms into an actual subway.

The discussion is a part of a three part series examining the works of Colson Whitehead before he visits Columbus on April 28th.
