Book Club

In May we are continuing to read Glory Over Everything: Beyond the Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. The book follows Jamie Pyke, the son of a white slave owner and biracial mother as he attempts to live as a free white man in the early 19th century. The book serves both as a sequel for those who have read The Kitchen House and as a stand-alone story for anyone new to Grissom’s work.

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 16 at 7:30pm. Please bring a drink or light snack to share.

Lastly, we have received some great input for book suggestions. A survey will posted on Facebook. Please cast your vote to help us create our reading list.
