We are proud to announce the A Novel Idea… Read Together selection for 2010 --- The New York Times #3 bestseller, The Help by author Kathryn Stockett. This debut novel paints a full and vivid picture of life in the South in the early sixties and the relationships that were born between white families and the black women who raised their children and who became integral in the lives of these Southern families. It studies that pain and shackles of prejudice without ever losing sight of the triumphant spirit of humanity.
A Novel Idea kicks off April 17, 2010 and will culminate with author Kathryn Stockett visiting Deschutes County on May 7 and May 8. All programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Chantal Strobel at 541.312.1031.
