The Invention of Wings, tells the story of four women - two sisters from the prosperous white Grimké family and an African-American mother and daughter who are their house slaves - living in antebellum Charleston, South Carolina. As their intertwined stories unfold in their own voices, we learn that the four have a lot in common, especially the desire to break free.

Join us as librarian Amy Mondello leads a discussion of this poignant novel. Copies of the book will be available at the Reference desk.
