Join us for the inaugural Charis meeting of the Reading Rainbow Book Club for lesbians and their friends. All are welcome to discuss the first book, Toni Morrison's Home. All books are chosen by Reading Rainbow club members and members receive 10% off the book club pick from Charis Books and More. About Home: America’s most celebrated novelist, Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison extends her profound take on our history with this twentieth-century tale of redemption: a taut and tortured story about one man’s desperate search for himself in a world disfigured by war. Frank Money is an angry, self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he’s hated all his life. As Frank revisits his memories from childhood and the war that have left him questioning his sense of self, he discovers a profound courage he had thought he could never possess again. A deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood—and his home. This event is co-sponsored by Charis Circle's From Margin to Center Literary Program. The suggested donation is $5.
