Book and Film Discussion: Their Eyes Were Watching God

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Zora Neale Hurston, an evocative writer of the Harlem Renaissance and fierce advocate of her
people’s culture, has left a rich heritage of story and artistic creation for us to cherish and enjoy. Their Eyes Were Watching God, a novel and film, will be the focus for two evenings as we consider Hurston’s place in American literature and discuss her depiction of African Americans’ ordinary lives and use of Black dialect, which set many in her community of artists and thinkers
on edge. Zora Neale Hurston continues to be a force to be reckoned with on her own terms. Come join us!
