HESTIA BOOK CLUB
June book: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk KIdd
Inspired by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke, Kidd goes beyond the record to flesh out the rich interior lives of all of her characters, both real and invented, including Handful’s cunning mother, Charlotte, who courts danger in her search for something better.
This exquisitely written novel is a triumph of storytelling that looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history, through women whose struggles for liberation, empowerment, and expression will leave no reader unmoved.
We meet the first Wednesday of the month, September through June.

7:00-7:30pm Connecting, time for drinks/food

8:30-9:00pm Logistics (selecting the next book and planning the next meeting)
Join us for a fun evening!
