May Book Discussion

May 6th, 2015 · Comments Off on May Book Discussion

May15-1

Join us on Tuesday, May 12 at 6:30 PM to discuss Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi.

In the winter of 1953, Boy Novak arrives in a small town in Massachusetts. She marries a local widower and becomes stepmother to his winsome daughter, Snow Whitman.

A wicked stepmother is a creature Boy never   imagined she’d become, but the birth of Boy’s daughter, Bird, who is dark skinned, exposes the Whitmans as light skinned African Americans passing for white. Boy, Snow, and Bird confront the tyranny of the mirror to ask how much power surfaces really hold.
