Experience and study Toni Morrison's novel, HOME

  • August 14, 21, and 28, 2018
  • 7:00pm - 8:30pm
  • Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Brevard, NC

Empathy HOME cover.JPGJoin educator Bill Moore for an opportunity to seek increased inter-racial and inter-gender understanding through a shared reading experience.  Bill's suggestion is that, for African-Americans, this brilliantly artistic but often emotionally wrenching story will encourage a sense of community heritage, strength, and values; for non-African-Americans, it may open a possibility for something like empathy with unfamiliar experiences of African-Americans, even if those readers' lives have led to few direct involvements outside their own communities.  The course is free.  Attendees will need to purchase the novel ($10-$18) on their own and Bill would be pleased to help find copies if needed.

Bill can be contacted at srwhmoore@comporium.net or 828-384-0526 or 828-877-6621
