James Boyd Book Club Meeting @ The Library  | Southern Pines | North Carolina | United States

Our Book Club meets the third Tuesday of every month and we read works by North Carolina authors.  All are welcome.  Please come and bring a friend!

This month, we will discuss The Conjure Woman, by Charles W. Chestnutt.

Charles Waddell Chesnutt (June 20, 1858 – November 15, 1932) was an African American author, essayist, political activist and lawyer, best known for his novels and short stories exploring complex issues of racial and social identity in the post-Civil War South.

The Conjure Woman is the title of an 1899 collection of seven stories by Charles W. Chesnutt, an important African American writer from the post-Civil War South; it was his first book. The stories deal with the racial issues facing the South after the war, often through the comments of the character of Uncle Julius McAdoo, a freed slave who tells these stories to a white couple from the North, John and Annie.
