Literature by People of Color

The Literature by People of Color Group will discuss Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (Harper, $16.99). One of the most important works of twentieth-century American literature, Zora Neale Hurston's 1937 classic is an enduring Southern love story sparkling with wit, beauty, and heartfelt wisdom. Told in the captivating voice of a woman who refuses to live in sorrow, bitterness, fear, or foolish romantic dreams, it is the story of fair-skinned, fiercely independent Janie Crawford, and her evolving selfhood through three marriages and a life marked by poverty, trials, and purpose. Hurston's masterwork remains as relevant and affecting today as when it was first published--perhaps the most widely read and highly regarded novel in the entire canon of African American literature.
