Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 14th at 4:45p for American Fiction at the Somerville Theatre. Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Thelonious “Monk” Ellison’s writing career has stalled because his
work isn’t deemed “Black enough.” Monk, a writer and English

success forces him to get deeper enmeshed in his assumed identity and
challenges his closely-held worldviews.
