The Asheville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta sorority will host a book discussion on Sunday, August 26, 2018 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Delta House Life Development Center, 218 South French Broad Avenue in Asheville.
Toni Morrison’s novel Love will be discussed. Morrison has long been revered for her novels, having received such notable awards as the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Love earned the 2004 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work, Fiction.
When Morrison began writing Love, she desired to bring light to the societal changes that came as a result of the U.S. Civil Rights movement. As her characters came to life, she discerned a larger theme: “the two things singular about human beings and the effort to be human—language and love.” The book reminds us all of Morrison’s lifelong interest in African American history and culture, and her insight into how one life can touch many, even in death. All who have read the book are welcome to participate in a hearty discussion.
