Fray Book Club // The Vanishing Half

We had so much fun at our inaugural Fray Book Club, that we just had to keep the fun going! Join us for Fray Book Club on August 6th!

// For this book club, we will be reading The Vanishing Half //


The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it’s not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it’s everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities.

Ten years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined.

What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters’ storylines intersect?


Our book club will take place on August 6 at 7:00 p.m. EDT to give everyone plenty of time to get the book and read it! Support your local bookstore and purchase from there (many can ship it to you, if you call) or if you don’t have a shop you can call, use our Amazon affiliate link:
