Pilgrim Women's Book Club

Join us for our September Book Club meeting to discuss "Sing, Unburied, Sing: A Novel" by Jesmyn Ward.

Set in rural Mississippi, told from each character’s point of view, we learn about the untimely and extremely unfortunate deaths of two people, different generations, both a result of racial strife, who come to haunt a mother and her son. The young boy, Jojo, our protagonist, is caught in a difficult position in his family. He has a seemingly uncaring mother yet the extreme love of his grandfather. He is also the primary caregiver to his sweet baby sister who has rejected their mother, with good cause.

Sing, Unburied, Sing is a slamming, heartbreaker of a novel that is rendered with such stinging beauty and restrained emotion that despite the anguish taking place on the page, you won’t want it to end. Our discussion promises to be relevant and engaging. We hope you can join us!
