Mind and Soul Alliance Bookclub meeting with Pearl Cleage

I have the world’s greatest BFF’s (Best Friends Forever!!!)..We have been getting together for the last 11 yrs as a bookclub to celebrate our love of literature.  In addition to getting together monthly to fellowship around books, we have gone to countless theater productions, concerts, clubs, etc..  We have hosted author events, celebrated births, and mourned deaths and misfortunes as a family..When we party….WE PAR’TAY’…by way of Caribbean Islands cruises and Las Vegas trips to honor our solidarity to each other and our cause…to be the best that each of us can be.

 

 

This previous weekend we hosted Atlanta’s own Pearl Cleage. 

Pearl, an internationally known author (What Looks LIke Crazy On an Ordinary Day, Baby Brother’s Blues: A Novel, Babylon Sisters: A Novel,) poet (We Speak Your Name, a poem written especially for Oprah’s Legends Weekend.), playwright (Blues For An Alabama Sky), and Essence Magazine journalist, is also famous for her debut novel, WHAT LOOKS LIKE CRAZY ON AN ORDINARY DAY  which was named as an official Oprah Book Club selection.

 

Our July, 2009 bookclub selection,  Seen It All and Done the Rest; is a novel set in southwest Atlanta.  It is about a African-American actress Josephine Evans, a self-proclaimed Las Vegas of grandmothers living and working in Amsterdam.  She has just been fired from a theater production, ostensibly for being too American. She returns to Atlanta to spend time with her granddaughter Zora, recently undone by her peripheral role in a splashy murder case, and to check on her family house. Josephine is hoping to keep Zora’s trust while steering her away from Zora’s father’s tragic bout with alcohol. After seeing the cracked-out wreckage of her stretch of Atlanta’s West End, Josephine also embarks on a plan with four other women to fix up her vandalized manse, a plan that includes the squatter she discovers there, Victor Causey.

 

I highly recommend this book…It’s a great and satisfying read.
