Sue Monk Kidd's The Invention of Wings will be our September selection for CapRadio Reads Face To Face meetings on Tuesday, September 8th.
The Invention of Wings begins with an image of Hetty"handful," who is a slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, talking about the night her mother told her that her ancestors in Africa could fly over trees and through clouds. With that story, Handful's mother gave her the hope that she might someday fly to freedom.
This book, written by the author of The Secret Life of Bees, is a story of struggles -- struggles to live free and struggles with the constraints of life for whites and blacks during this time in our history.
I hope you will enjoy the book and join us for our conversation on September 8th. With two meetings to choose from, there should be a place at the table for all who wish to come.
See you then.
