Keepin' It Real

Our book club met the other night at Eileen's fabulous vintage abode for drinks and discussion of our latest assignment:

Over Pimms Cups and Nicoise Salad we talked about Janie and Jody and Tea Cake and the fabulous life of Zora Neale Hurston in general. Over the past year I have come to LOVE and eagerly await Book Club every month. We looked back in this our 8th month of existance and ruminated on some of the books we have read so far: Wuthering Heights, The Great Gatsby, The Leopard, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Big Sleep. All fine works. All thoroughly enjoyed by each of us.

And then I came home from work last night, eager to relax, and grabbed my new read. Not a book club book, but another fine work nonetheless.

You know I have to keep it real! Can't wait to see what my girl Nene has to say.

(Big ups to Andy for hooking me up!)

Ohhhhh girl I foresee this being a book club read, and by book club I mean you + me and WATER IN A WINE GLASS (or, you know, WINE in a wine glass).

I can't wait to hear how this is! I love NeNe.

Sarah said...

YES! you really can't not love Nene.

Erin said...

Their Eyes Were Watching God is a great book.

Sarah said...

Yes it is! The focus of our book club is to re read books we read in college/high school that maybe we didnt appreciate as much as we should have. This was definitely one I enjoyed even more now 10 years later after reading it the first time!
