Swing Time, by Zadie Smith

Discussion Leader: Hillary Copsey

An ambitious, exuberant new novel moving from North West London to West Africa, from the multi-award-winning author of White Teeth and On Beauty
Two brown girls dream of being dancers—but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.

Hillary Copsey is a journalist and lifelong bookworm. She is on a mission to #MakeAmericaReadAgain.
