Presenter: Shannon

Invention of Wings by Sue Monk KiddIn the hands of a master storyteller, the life of an early-nineteenth century abolitionist, suffragette, and independent spirit comes to life. It is inspired by the true story of Sarah Grimke, who was given a slave girl for her eleventh birthday. Told in the first person, the chapters alternate between the two girls? perspectives, following their lives from childhood to middle age. What does it mean to be a sister, a friend, a woman, an outcast, a slave? A fascinating story of their struggles, set amidst a difficult time in American history. Join us for a lively discussion at the Avenue Flower Shop and Wine Bar, 10632 S. Cicero. No registration required and all are welcome!
