    Historic Newton’s book club selection of the month tells the powerful story of the exodus of six million black Southerners out of the social oppression of Jim Crow to an "uncertain existence" in the North and Midwest. In The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration, Isabel Wilkerson incorporates sociological and historical studies into the powerful narratives of three migrants who settle in new places with varying degrees of success and disappointment. The New York Times has hailed The Warmth of Other Suns as one of the ten best books of 2010. The book club is free and open to the public. New members are always welcome.
