Sue Monk Kidd’s latest chosen for Oprah’s Book Club

wingsTwo strong women characters dominate the latest novel by Sue Monk Kidd, “The Invention of Wings.” Her “Secret Life of Bees” was a runaway bestseller in 2003. Kidd examined different theories of feminist theology in that book. This time she focuses on a young girl, Sarah Grimke, and the girl given to her as a slave, “Handful.” The novel follows the course of their lives over the next few decades and the struggles they face during the 1800’s in Charleston. Here’s the link to Oprah‘s website and discussion of this selection. This link will take you to the LA Times article on the Oprah book club process.
