Join Denise Stankovics virtually to discuss Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.
Fair and long-legged, independent and articulate, Janie Crawford sets out to be her own person -- no mean feat for a black woman in the '30s. Janie's quest for identity takes her through three marriages and into a journey back to her roots.
One of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years-due largely to initial audiences' rejection of its strong black female protagonist-Hurston's classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.
Physical copies of the book are available through curbside pickup, or you can borrow the ebook or digital audiobook through the Library's Hoopla account. Please call 860-763-3501 if you’d like to request a physical book and to register to receive the Zoom link for the event.
