"What is a book club but an excuse to talk to friends? The Toni Morrison Book Club brings that experience to life by telling the story of four friends who turn to Toni Morrison as they search for meaning in their lives. In this startling group memoir, the writers--black and white, gay and straight, immigrant and American born--allow Morrison's words, like music, to make them feel, confess, and discover. The result is a collection of deeply personal conversations about everything from first love to Soul Train to police brutality, all told with an ever present lens on race in America. Not shying away from controversies, this book offers a radically new way to envision book clubs as a healing force in our lives. So pull up a chair and pour yourself a much needed glass of wine, as you get ready to experience the messy differences, surprising revelations, and restorative power of The Toni Morrison Book Club"--
What is a book club but an excuse to talk to friends? Bennett, Brown-Claude, Jackson and Williams turned to Toni Morrison as they searched for meaning in their lives. Black and white, gay and straight, immigrant and American born, the friends used Morrison's words as a springboard for intimate conversations about the problems of everyday racism and living whole in times of uncertainty. -- adapted from publisher info and back cover
