An important book for this time, Colson Whitehead’s “The Underground Railroad” offers brutal history in a Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction. You absolutely can’t put it down. It’s a narrative of the slave era as human property is bought and sold over generations. No surprise, this novel has been called a modern literary masterpiece. — Linda Navarro

What to watch?

Press the space bar and one of the world’s most beautiful songs, Claude Debussy’s “Claire de Lune,” plays while the videos scroll by. — Jennifer Mulson
