The Uniqueness of it all

In observance of Black History Month, Readers Perspective Book Club will read a novel called the Wench. This novel was written by Dolen Perkins Valdez. It is a finely wrought story that explores the emotional lives of four slave women caught in the web of the “peculiar Institution” and it sheds light on the racial intricacies of America’s past. We will be discussing the book on February 25, 2013. If you haven’t read it, come by and pick up a copy or just come and sit in on the discussion if you like.
