The Women of Brewster Place
(we loved it so, so much)
You’ll hear it right away in today’s episode … we LOVED The Women of Brewster Place by Gloria Naylor. A novel-in-short-stories was perfect for our attention spans and our reading tastes, and Naylor’s carefully-crafted narrative, plus her seven main characters, made for a memorable reading experience. We can’t wait to discuss this modern classic with patrons in Classics Club on August 25 at 7 pm ET. Today’s pairings might be destined to be classics themselves, so don’t miss out on this spoiler-free episode.
