PALMDALE — The Palmdale City Library, located at 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, at 6:45 p.m., Feb. 18.

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 p.m. Meetings are held upstairs in the library’s Local History Room. New members are welcome to attend.
