Hello dear member of the Black Feminist/Womanist Literature group! It's J., the admin., and I'm writing to inform you of the group's new look! (And it goes beyond the change in our group picture, though it is nice, don't you agree?) :) What we're discussing now: Patricia Hill Collins' Black Feminist Thought, Toni Morrison's Sula for our July read, our little BIG Read: 7 short stories in 7 days to begin later this month, the National Black Arts Festival where Alice Walker and Pearl Cleage are featured speakers, and more!
We'll soon have a group blog up and running, will begin profiling the uberly dynamic authors within our own group, discussing women's/girls action coalitions in your city, reviving some of our good ol' threads, etc.
I challenge everyone to invite at least one friend (already a member of shelfari or otherwise) to join the Black Feminist/Womanist Literature group and to log in at least bi-weekly. (Though weekly would be wonderful!) And I pledge to do the same.
And did you know that Toni Morrison's new novel, A Mercy, is due to be released in November? Ah, you would if you'd visited our group page! (No, actually, I haven't posted this information. lol) But do stop by and fall into the purple haze that is extraordinary literature by feminists of color!

Thanx for the kind info! I have just finished with the GreatGatsby.I like the narration technique. Nick seems to be the only sincere being around. Daisy like everyone else is an imprudent ,slapdash,fickle-minded person. Gatsby's abrupt death and funeral without friends is very moving!
Thanks for the note. I think I'll continue to be chatty, if that's okay with you. Are you sympathetic with feminism or just interested in feminist theory? Betty Friedan and Germaine Greer were two of my favorite writers many long years ago, esp. Greer. I should have taken a better look at your shelf before writing--am going to do that now. See you later.
Hi there. I don't mind having you join my group of friends. Literally I started this account yesterday so I don't have many friends other than my inviter and a couple people that accepted my invites. :)
Thanks. I was reading a couple books about Austen and her books. I really do like some of the interesting things they have to say. If you are ever able to find it, I would recommend "Jane Austen for Dummies" as another commentary book. I believe that Ms. Joan Elizabeth Klingel Ray is also a professor. I don't know which college however.
I'm sending you a recommend for a novel I just completed that I think worth reading but will give you a heads up that it does chronicle a gay love affair and is rather graphic, so if you would find this offensive then better to not pick it up. However, the reason I recommend this book is for it's fantastic use of the language and the delightfu lprose.
Also, it is the first book that I've read since Catcher in the Rye that really allows you in to the head of the character almost thought for thought. This lead character is a 17 year old boy named Elio on the cusp of his sexual confusion. The ending leaves a bit to be desired and wraps up almost tritely, but all that leads up to the "adult" Elio is well done and deserving of a read.

Hi Applepicker and thank you for your kind note. Ann Arbor is fantastic! I couldn't do better than to recommend you contact a fellow Shelfarian, Zawadi, who still lives in the A2 area and has prolific contacts and is an avid part of the community with her non profit girls program (detailed in her profile.) She is absolutely warm, delightful and open to meeting and engaging with new people. Hope this is helpful. Please don't hesitate to email me for places to go and sites to see as I spent the first 30 years of my life in Ann Arbor and try to get back one every other year or so.
