Book Club  |  Attica - Journey Down The Rabbit Hole by Timothy M. Shannon

Thursday, March 5, 2020, 6 pm

Breakthrough Novel Award Semifinalist! Set in the aftermath of the 1971 Attica Prison uprising, the novel explores the toll the prison takes on all who enter through the massive iron gates. The plot is unveiled through the perspective of the inmates, the correction officers, the civilians and their families. The fast-paced story unfolds amidst an undercurrent of violent intrigue, easily shifting point of view from character to character presenting a multifaceted perspective. An undercurrent of mystery involving prison officials and the underworld in a campaign of intimidation and murder challenges the protagonist to unravel the mystery and stay alive in the process. Universal themes of Good vs. Evil are addressed through the internal conflicts of common men and women in uncommon circumstances. Faced with corruption, alienation and brutality, each must make crucial choices that could make the difference between life and death. Some are equal to the challenge and others are not.

The Center’s book club takes place on the First Thursday of the month and features books written by WNY authors. Whenever possible, the author will attend the meeting!
