April 2016 - ZAMI, A New Spelling of My Name

Hi everyone

Very excited to discuss a book this month by Audre Lorde! She was an American writer, radical feminist, womanist, lesbian, and civil rights activist. We'll be reading ZAMI, A New Spelling of my Name by Audre Lorde.

Here's the Book Summary
ZAMI is a fast-moving chronicle. From the author's vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late 1950s, the nature of Audre Lorde's work is cyclical. It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her . . . Lorde brings into play her craft of lush description and characterization. It keeps unfolding page after page.

We will be meeting at the Mazarine Cafe in Financial District on Sunday April 17 at 2pm.
