HCC Library Book Club -- Summer Series
(This event is free and all members of the community are welcome!)
The next best thing to reading a good book is talking about it! And it is even better with a free southern comfort lunch! If you agree, please join us. The next book of our summer book club series is Invention of Wings by author, Sue Monk Kidd. The books and audiobooks are now available for check out at the circulation desk.
About the Book:
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.
