The Black Voices Book Club met as scheduled on November 15, 2010, to discuss Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's novel, "Half of a Yellow Sun". Welcome to our newest member, Ms. Monique Diop. Monique was so impressed with what she saw that she immediately decided that she wants to play a more active part in the club. At the request of Barbara Marshall, Monique has volunteered to manage the Club's Facebook. Thanks to Barbara who started the Facebook and has managed it since then.

New members are still invited to join the club. There is still time for you to join us at our December 20 meeting when we will be discussing Walter Mosley's novel, "Devil in a Blue Dress" or at any time. Copies of the book are available at the library's circulation desk for members and prospective members to check out.
