Monday, December 14th, 6:00-7:30 PM
Join us for a lively community conversation about beloved author Zora Neale Hurston, path-breaking novelist, pioneering anthropologist and one of the first black women to enter the American literary canon (Their Eyes Were Watching God.) Hurston established the African American vernacular as one of the most vital, inventive voices in American literature!
Prior to the event, we invite you to privately screen the PBS American Masters documentary Jump at the Sun, a definitive film biography, eighteen years in the making, which portrays Zora in all her complexity: gifted, flamboyant, and controversial but always fiercely original.
We’ll also send you “Looking for Zora,” an excellent essay by the author Alice Walker. Hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an uplifting time together!
