April is here and it's time we add another great book to our nightstand! This month's historical fiction novel, The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, found its place on Oprah's Book Club list by portraying the riveting lives of an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, and a wealthy young woman actively seeking to help abolish slavery, despite her family's ownership of a plantation. Using a perfect blend of fact and fiction, Sue Monk Kidd travels outside the realm of your everyday slavery depiction and ties in real pain and injustice with courageous activism and hope.
Purchase your book this week to begin reading, giving you a little over a month to complete. This book can be purchased on Amazon, ranging from $11.00 to $17.00, on Amazon kindle for $9.99, or through any of your preferred resale shops or vendors online or in-store. This month, I hope that we can discover a genre that brings the best of history and fiction and finds a way to intertwine the two into a believable and genuine masterpiece. Let's be ready to discuss the emotions and thoughts evoked by this book. We will meet May 12 at 12:30. Location details will be coming soon (Outdoor location pending weather). Let's keep our fingers crossed for warm weather, a nice picnic blanket--maybe even some wine sharing and bites! RSVP's are required and will be accepted until end of day May 7. Let's change the scene and move out of our genre of comfort! Looking forward to seeing the insights gathered from this book!
