The Green Book Wine Club Train Trip

by Michelle Tyrene Johnson

Five Black Women from Missouri.  Friendship, Wine, Laughter, Tears, and Secrets.  What happens when unexpected time travel takes them back to a 1940’s boarding house mentioned in “The Negro Motorist Green Book.”  Marie, a librarian, in addition to arranging the trip, is also doing research for her grandmother’s 80th birthday which involves looking through the guidebook used by African-Americans in pre-integration America to know the safe places to stay and patronize while traveling.  Her friends are double-cast as the occupants of the boarding house.  Join us on the journey and find out what happens when these worlds collide.
