Diversity Book Group

Exploring Diversity Book Group – Start Reading for September 26 Meeting


The Diversity Book Group meets on Zoom at 1:30 pm about every 5th Monday. We’re starting our book for discussion on Monday September 26 at 1:30 pm: The Last Blue by Isla Morley. This historical novel is set in the mountainous backwoods of Appalachia in the 1930’s. A writer and photographer are dispatched by the WPA to document this place. Young Jubilee Buford has a genetic blue-colored skin aberration that makes her and her family community outcasts. Superstition and racism confront them; yet through it all, nothing affects her spirit. When photographer Havens discovers Jubilee by a creek in the woods, he is awestruck and captivated. A high-stakes drama unfolds along an unpredictable path where love just barely conquers all. This book is a memorable, ageless story with a timely message and a satisfying ending. This is the group’s second book about the blues of Appalachia.

To get advance notices, discussion questions, and the Zoom link, email Jane Malin at orkidfam@swbell.net. Our November book is Sonya Sotomayor’s My Beloved World.
