Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Invention of wingsTitle to be discussed: The invention of wings by Sue Monk Kidd.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, February 9, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "The story follows Hetty "Handful" Grimke, a Charleston slave, and Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family. The novel begins on Sarah's eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership over Handful, who is to be her handmaid. "The Invention of Wings" follows the next thirty-five years of their lives. Inspired in part by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke (a feminist, suffragist and, importantly, an abolitionist), Kidd allows herself to go beyond the record to flesh out the inner lives of all the characters, both real and imagined."
