CTJ Book Club - The Human Stain

We are reading “The Human Stain” by Philip Roth, published in 2000. The book is set during the period of President Clinton's impeachment hearings. Coleman Silk is a former professor accused of racism by two African American students. The charge is a lie, but the real truth would have astonished even his most virulent accuser. For more information or to get on the reminder email contact dorittravel@gmail.com
