Their Eyes Were Watching God - Kingwood Book Group October Discussion

Join the Kingwood Book Group on October 19th as they discuss Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God. This book is the 2009 title for Houston’s Books on the Bayou annual program. This program is in its 8th year and seeks to bring together an entire city through reading and discussing the same book.

Since the building is now roofed in, interior changes can’t be easily seen by air.
