Lakeview Book Discussion of "Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick: Stories from the Harlem Renaissance" by Zora Neale Hurston

Description

Join us for a book discussion of "Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick: Stories from the Harlem Renaissance" by Zora Neale Hurston. New members always welcome!  Please check with library staff for location or Zoom link.

"...an outstanding collection of stories about love and migration, gender and class, racism and sexism that proudly reflect African American folk culture. Brought together for the first time in one volume, they include eight of Hurston’s ‘lost’ Harlem stories, which were found in forgotten periodicals and archives.

These stories challenge conceptions of Hurston as an author of rural fiction and include gems that flash with her biting, satiric humour, as well as more serious tales reflective of the cultural currents of Hurston’s world. All are timeless classics that enrich our understanding and appreciation of this exceptional writer’s voice and her contributions to America’s literary traditions." -- Amazon.com
