I am excited about discussing The Color of Water, a black man’s tribute to his white mother by James McBride. This is a great discussion book (I have read it once before) and as an added bonus he will be speaking at the Farmingdale Public Library on Sunday, April 29th. For information about how to get tickets, go to http://www.longislandreads.org/meettheauthor.html. Tickets may be requested beginning March 28th.
The Melville book group will be discussing it at its regular monthly meeting on Friday, April 13th, 12 noon at the Melville library building, 510 Sweet Hollow Road, Melville. Join us, we would love to have you and if that is not possible, post your thoughts about the book here.
