The WeddingCome join us for a discussion of Dorothy West's 1996 novel, The Wedding.  This widely heralded novel tells the story of the Oval, a wealthy black community in 1950s Martha's Vineyard.

The novel focuses on the Coles family, in particular, the upcoming marriage of Shelby Coles to a white jazz musician. Through the examination of this one event, West analyzes race and familial relations as they exist through many generations.

We will have copies available for check-out at the library, or you can reserve your copy of the book.  There is no need to register for the book club, so stop by and join us!
