The Red TentMonday, May 18 @ 7pm


The Bible hints at the story of Dinah in the Book of Genesis. She is only mentioned in relation with her father Jacob and his dozen sons. Anita Diamant's The Red Tent, told in Dinah’s voice, offers insight into the turmoil and traditions of ancient womanhood. The novel begins with the story of her mothers—Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah—the four wives of Jacob. Their love for Dinah shows in the gifts they bestow upon her; gifts that sustain her through a hard-working childhood, midwifery, and a new home in a place foreign to her. Through Dinah’s eyes, the reader will discover a remarkable period of history and create a connection with the past. New members are always welcome!

The Invention of WingsThis month's selection The Invention of Wings, by Sue Monk Kidd, follows Hetty "Handful" Grimke, a Charleston slave, and Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family. The novel begins on Sarah's eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership over Handful, who is to be her handmaid. "The Invention of Wings" follows the next thirty-five years of their lives. Inspired in part by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke (a feminist, suffragist and, importantly, an abolitionist), Kidd allows herself to go beyond the record to flesh out the inner lives of all the characters, both real and imagined.  New members are always welcome.
