    Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Pérez

    Monday, February 13

    6:00 pm–8:00 pm

    Facilitator: Lisa Alexander

    IDPH and CDC face mask guidelines will be observed.

    “More than grief, more than anger, there is a need. Someone to blame. Someone to make pay.”

    Ashley Hope Pérez takes the facts of the 1937 New London school explosion—the worst school disaster in American history—as a backdrop for a riveting novel about segregation, love, family, and the forces that destroy people.

    Historical fiction with a number of disturbing the themes, this book depicts a moment of history that is worth remembering.

    The Liars' Club by Mary Karr

    Monday, March 13

    6:00 pm–8:00 pm

    Facilitator: Lisa Alexander

    IDPH and CDC face mask guidelines will be observed.

    Mary Karr grew up in a swampy East Texas refinery town in a volatile and defiantly loving family. In this funny, devastating, haunting memoir and with a raw and often painful honesty, she looks back at life with a painter mother, seven times married, whose outlaw spirit could tip over into psychosis, and a hard-drinking, fist-swinging father who liked nothing better than to spin tales with his cronies at the Liars’ Club.

    Karr’s style and description will pull you in. You won’t want this book to end!

    The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

    Monday, April 10

    6:00 pm–8:00 pm

    Facilitator: Lisa Alexander

    IDPH and CDC face mask guidelines will be observed.

    The Bluest Eye is Toni Morrison’s first novel, a book heralded for its richness of language and boldness of vision. Set in the author’s girlhood hometown of Lorain, Ohio, it tells the story of black, eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove. Pecola prays for her eyes to turn blue so that she will be as beautiful and beloved as all the blond, blue-eyed children in America. In the autumn of 1941, the year the marigolds in the Breedloves’ garden do not bloom. Pecola’s life does change- in painful, devastating ways.

    Banned in some classrooms for “explicit language.” This book explores truths that are hard for many people to face. Truly a work of genius.
