“From Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison comes God Help the Child, a stirring novel about the childhood traumas we carry into adulthood. At the center of the story is Bride, a beautiful young woman with blue-black skin, praised for her looks by the wider world but rejected by her light-skinned mother. Bride’s adolescent sufferings push her to seek success and validation in later life, but her mother’s lies and abuse are always lingering in the background, waiting to resurface. Morrison’s newest novel–her first set in our contemporary moment–tackles issues of race, trauma, and self-image in her hallmark fiery prose and matchless storytelling.”
I look forward to attending this wonderful event!
