Description

Join us at BronxArtSpace, 305 E. 140th St., BX NYC, when One Book One Bronx explore the Toni Morrison classic, Sula.

Tuesdays 630-8pm: Oct 22, 29, Nov 5, 12, 19, 2019. Free to join and free books available to the first 25 attendees. Participants are expected to attend all five sessions

Two girls who grow up to become women. Two friends who become something worse than enemies. In this brilliantly imagined novel, Toni Morrison tells the story of Nel Wright and Sula Peace, who meet as children in the small town of Medallion, Ohio. Their devotion is fierce enough to withstand bullies and the burden of a dreadful secret. It endures even after Nel has grown up to be a pillar of the black community and Sula has become a pariah. But their friendship ends in an unforgivable betrayal—or does it end? Terrifying, comic, ribald and tragic, Sula is a work that overflows with life.

One Book One Bronx hosts restorative conversations related to gentrification, social justice, women’s empowerment, criminal justice, and racial inequality. Reading selections reflect the racial, economic, and gender demographics of the borough and build bridges to engagement while (re)sparking a love of literature. Sessions meet weekly for five weeks. Made possible, in part, by the Citizens Committee of New York City.
