You can also post your own reviews and catalog what you have read, are currently reading, and plan to read in the future.

4 Seasons Book Club Selections
The Invention of Wings
by Sue Monk Kidd
Inspired by the true story of suffragist and abolitionist Sarah Grimké, The Invention of Wings, explores the complex relationship between Grimké, the privileged daughter of a Southern plantation owner, and Handful, her family’s compliant, yet strong-willed, slave. Through alternating first-person narrative, Kidd masterfully illustrates the struggles of each woman to break free from their oppressors in pursuit of their dreams.
A limited number of copies of The Invention of Wings will be available to borrow for preregistered participants.
A list of books, articles and "read-a-likes" is available at library.booksite.com/6631/nl/?list=CNL14&group=EB255 .
