The Palmdale City Library, 700 E. Palmdale Blvd., will host the next meeting of the African- American Authors Book Club to discuss the novel “Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6:45 p.m.

In “Invisible Man”, a nameless narrator recounts the story of his life as a Black man, from growing up in the South, to joining a group known as the Brotherhood, which claims to want to improve the world, only to become disillusioned with it and to be left re-examining his experiences, struggles, and feelings of invisibility. The first novel written by Ralph Ellison, “Invisible Man” won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1953.

The African-American Authors Book Club meets the third Tuesday of every month at 6:45 pm. Meetings are held upstairs in the library’s Local History Room. New members are welcome to attend.

The Palmdale City Library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
