In November, our monthly non-fiction discussion will focus on Three Girls from Bronzeville by Dawn Turner. A deeply personal memoir, Turner outlines the lives of herself, her sister and her best friend in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago through the 1970s and beyond, as their lives diverge greatly from the urban, middle class upbringing they all shared. The publisher relates that it is "celebration of sisterhood, a testimony to the unique struggles of Black women, and a tour-de-force about the complex interplay of race, class, and opportunity, and how those forces shape our lives and our capacity for resilience and redemption."
