May 2017 FREE BOOK!

This past year, my reading group selected THE INVENTION OF WINGS by Sue Monk Kidd for one of our discussions. We all loved it.

From the back cover: “A triumphant story about the quest for freedom and empowerment, Sue Monk Kidd’s third novel presents the extraordinary journey of two unforgettable women: Hetty “Handful” Grimke, a slave in early nineteenth-century Charleston, and Sarah,[ her owner…. The novel] is set in motion on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership of ten-year-old Handful.”

You will love this story and the ending, which is magnificent.

Our give-away copy is a new trade paperback. To have your name included in our Wednesday, May 17 drawing, just answer this question: Do you remember a birthday gift from your childhood? If so, tell us what it was.

Happy Reading!

    All of my best birthday presents were books: ‘Fiddlesticks and Freckles’, about raising two orphan fawns, ‘the Girl of the Limberlost’ books, and ‘Star of Light’ by Patricia St. John.

    A pop-up book, which began my love affair with pop-up books.

    I always loved to receive books for my birthday, Deb. I still do!!

    Little House in the Woods was one of my favorite gifts. My birthday is a week before Christmas so I usually only received one gift. This sounds like my kind of book.

    I don’t remember the toys… I remember the books and as a teenager I got The Outsiders, and that’s when I knew I was going to be a writer………………. when I was about ten I got a notebook and I used it to list all the books I read in the local Library.. I stopped at 400 a few years later as I moved from the children books to the young adult books and lost count! My childhood was amazing. 😊

    Your childhood definitely sounds amazing, Rashawn!! How glorious — 400 books.

    I was also a great fan of Laura Ingalls and the Little House books, Sandra. I still read them every few years!!
