April: 'The Wedding'

The WeddingCome join us for a discussion of Dorothy West's 1996 novel, The Wedding.  This widely heralded novel tells the story of the Oval, a wealthy black community in 1950s Martha's Vineyard.

The novel focuses on the Coles family, in particular, the upcoming marriage of Shelby Coles to a white jazz musician. Through the examination of this one event, West analyzes race and familial relations as they exist through many generations.

We will have copies available for check-out at the library, or you can reserve your copy of the book.  There is no need to register for the book club, so stop by and join us on Wednesday, April 24 at 2 p.m.!
