Peace and Justice Book Circle - Midnight Without a Moon, Linda Williams Jackson

Meeting Room 115
11/01/2018 - 6:30pm to 7:45pm

"It’s Mississippi in the summer of 1955, and Rose Lee Carter can’t wait to move north. But for now, she’s living with her sharecropper grandparents on a white man’s cotton plantation.
Then, one town over, an African American boy, Emmett Till, is killed for allegedly whistling at a white woman. When Till’s murderers are unjustly acquitted, Rose realizes that the South needs a change . . . and that she should be part of the movement.
Linda Jackson’s moving debut seamlessly blends a fictional portrait of an African American family and factual events from a famous trial that provoked change in race relations in the United States."

Peace and Justice Book Circle meets monthly on the 1st Thursday of every month from 6:30 to 7:45p.m. at the Goodman South Madison Library, 2222 S Park St., Madison. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation if you are interested in the topic regardless of whether or not you have read the book.
