Ray McMillian is a Black classical musician on the rise when a shocking theft sends him on a quest to recover his heirloom violin on the eve of the most prestigious musical competition in the world.

This meeting will be held IN PERSON and ON ZOOM. Those unable to attend in person can join us via Zoom simultaneously. Registration begins February 13. This book club meets every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

Join us to discuss The Violin Conspiracy by Brendan Slocumb:

"Ray McMillian loves playing the violin more than anything, and nothing will stop him from pursuing his dream of becoming a professional musician. Not his mother, who thinks he should get a real job, not the fact that he can't afford a high-caliber violin, not the racism inherent in the classical music world. And when he makes the startling discovery that his great-great-grandfather's fiddle is actually a priceless Stradivarius, his star begins to rise. Then with the international Tchaikovsky Competition—the Olympics of classical music—fast approaching, his prized family heirloom is stolen. Ray is determined to get it back. But now his family and the descendants of the man who once enslaved Ray's great-great-grandfather are each claiming that the violin belongs to them. With the odds stacked against him and the pressure mounting, will Ray ever see his beloved violin again?"
