The Diamond Eye

“The Diamond Eye” by Kate Quinn.

Club Book returns with a virtual author visit at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13 with acclaimed essayist and poet Boyah J. Farah. Farah immigrated to the United States in the mid-1990s as part of the Somali diaspora when thousands of families fled the war-torn Horn of Africa.

Instead of finding safety and freedom, Farah quickly learned that his adoptive country is plagued by deep-seated issues of its own. His memoir, “America Made Me a Black Man,” is one of the first-ever book-length examinations of American racism written from an African emigrant’s perspective.
