Listening to Writers of Color
July 28, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Do you want to deepen your understanding of what it is like to live as a person of color in the US? Olmsted UU member Lara Lillibridge is leading a book group to give us a glimpse into the lives of others, told in their own words. Come for one or all.
Lillibridge holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from West Virginia Wesleyan College, and is the Interviews Editor for “Hippocampus Magazine”. Author visits will be arranged whenever possible.
Our July book is Crave: Sojourn of a Hungry Soul by Laurie Cannady.
“In Laurie Jean Cannady’s Crave, power is taken and power is given in a timeless story of the levels of existence that poverty and disenfranchisement sometimes force families to endure, and the insistence of one family to carry on. Through the eyes of an indomitable young woman, we glimpse the despair and possibility of life and witness the triumph of her finding her way to her own sense of worth and strength. Crave reminds us all that circumstances do not define us.” -Morowa Yejidé, author of Time of the Locust.
