About The Event

The book group is open to all.  There is no long term commitment.  Feel free to join us for a single evening's discussion or to become a regular participant. 

The selection for the March discussion is Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. The story of Janie Crawford is set in a small Florida town during the Depression. It's now considered a classic but it was actually out of print for about 30 years due to the (perceived?) lack of interest in a strong, Black woman protagonist. This is how the writer Zadie Smith describes it: "A deeply soulful novel that comprehends love and cruelty, and the separates the big people from the small of heart, without ever losing sympathy for those unfortunates who don't know how to live properly."

To join the group, email or sign up online.
