Their Eyes Were Watching God discussion group

In this time of facing up to our country’s long history of racial injustice, many of us are struggling to educate ourselves in the work of racial healing in our own communities.  To provide a forum for this exploration, City Lights Bookstore in Sylva, NC, will host a Zoom discussion of Zora Neale Hurston’s 1937 classic, Their Eyes Were Watching God.  

Their Eyes Were Watching God is the book about which Alice Walker said, ‟There is no book more important to me than this one.” Time magazine included it on its list 2005 list of the 100 best English-language novels published since 1923.

The discussion will be guided by Donna Glee Williams, author of Dreamers and The Braided Path, and free of charge. Call 828-586-9499 or email us to participate in the conversation at 6 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday, April 17, 2021.
