November Adult Book Club – The Bluest Eye

November 9, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Calling all readers! The Bixby Book Club meets the second Tuesday of every month at 6pm. We read a variety of books, spanning the genres of contemporary, literary, and historical fiction, as well as non-fiction, biography, and classics. Didn’t read or finish the book? No worries! This is a no-judgement book club.

This meeting will be held in the Bixby Vermont Room, we are currently requiring masks inside the building and have large air filters all over the building.

Books can be reserved by emailing Laksamee at laksamee.putnam@bixbylibrary.org 

The November read is “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison. View a list of past and upcoming reads here.

Description from Amazon:

In Morrison’s bestselling first novel, Pecola Breedlove—an 11-year-old Black girl in an America whose love for its blond, blue-eyed children can devastate all others—prays for her eyes to turn blue: so that she will be beautiful, so that people will look at her, so that her world will be different. This is the story of the nightmare at the heart of her yearning, and the tragedy of its fulfillment.
