CommUNITY Book Club--The Color of Water

Journalist and musician, James McBride, is one of 12 siblings who grew up in a poor housing project in Brooklyn, NY. He was the son of a black minister, and a woman who would not admit she was white. In the biography, The Color of Water, McBride tells the remarkable story of his mother's long buried past--how her Jewish family came to America to escape persecution, and how she left her faith and family behind as a teen, to move to New York, where she married and started a family. The Color of Water is a moving and remarkable tribute that spent over two years on the New York Times Bestseller List. Contact the library to obtain a copy of this book and join in the discussion.
