Book for July: Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Please share your thoughts about the book in the comment section!

Questions to get you started:

  • Did this change your understanding of slavery?
  • What did you think of the two narrators: Handful and Sarah? What did you most admire about each?
  • How did each of their mothers form Handful and Sarah?
  • Both of them had a “baptism” moment:  Handful in the copper tub and Sarah when she let go of the sea rope at the shore. What did they mean?
  • Handful says to Sara: “My body might be a slave, but not my mind. For you, it’s the other way around.” Do you think that’s true? How did they both find freedom?
  • Which of the male characters did you find most compelling?
  • How is this story relevant today?

    Book for August: Yes Please by Amy Poehler

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts in August!
