The Macon Pageturners read and discuss fiction and non-fiction from across the African Diaspora. We meet every first and second Friday online; at our first meeting we discuss the author and their life. At the second meeting we review the book of the month.
This November’s book will be Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches by Audre Lorde.
Where to find it: Sister Outsider is available from the Brooklyn Public Library in eAudioBook, eBook, and physical formats. Relevant reviews and partial readings are also available on YouTube.
About the book: Published in 1984, Sister Outsider is a collection of black feminist essays and speeches by Audre Lorde (1934-1992). Born in New York, Lorde is renowned for her poetry, prose and critical work that address themes of racism, civil rights, sexuality, discrimination and more.
Quote from the text: "… the master's tools will never dismantle the master's house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him his own game, but they will never enable us to bring genuine change."
