March Book Club at the Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum

Event Description

Join us for our bi-monthly book club on Saturday, March 21st at 10am in the Visitor Center!

This month's book selection is Zora Neale Hurston's "Their Eyes Were Watching God." We will also be reading a supplemental work of nonfiction titled "Bertie County: An Eastern Carolina History" by Dr. Arwin Smallwood.  Dr. Smallwood will be joining us for the discussion of his book! 

One of the most important works of twentieth-century American literature, Zora Neale Hurston's beloved 1937 classic, Their Eyes Were Watching God, 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. A true literary wonder, 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.
