Book Club: “The Invention of Wings: A Novel” by Sue Monk Kidd

The Invetion of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Join OHA’s book club on May 7th to discuss “The Invention of Wings: A Novel” by Sue Monk Kidd. According to NPR‘s Bobbi Dumas, “the book is the fictionalized history of the Grimké sisters, Sarah and Angelina (Nina), who were at the forefront of the abolitionist and women’s rights movements, wound around the intriguing narrative of a young slave, Hetty, who was given to Sarah as an 11th birthday present. Sarah despises slavery, even at that early age, and out of principle attempts to reject the gift…The novel is a textured masterpiece, quietly yet powerfully poking our consciences and our consciousness. What does it mean to be a sister, a friend, a woman, an outcast, a slave? How do we use our talents to better ourselves and our world? How do we give voice to our power, or learn to empower our voice?”
