Adult Book Club

Ona Judge-Adult Book Club

In September the group will meet to discuss a nonfiction selection with a bit of local history, Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of their Runaway Slave Ona Judge by Erica Dunbar. Ona Judge was a slave owned by Martha Washington who spent time in Philadelphia. From Philadelphia, the young Ona Judge made a break for freedom and escaped to Portsmouth, New Hampshire where she successfully avoided capture.
