Book Discussion of The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Conference Room 104
Wednesday, Aug 21, 2024, 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Inspired by a real historical figure, Kidd alternates chapters between one of two abolitionist and women’s rights focused sisters and the enslaved girl ‘gifted’ to one of them on her 11th birthday. Letters, articles, and diaries of the time inform the narrative, which is unsentimental and unflinching yet also deemed by many reviewers as a ‘masterpiece’ of hope and daring. Join us for discussion and perhaps dessert. Newcomers warmly welcomed.
