Storyteller Book Club | Alamance

July 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

NCWN Regional Meeting
Storyteller Book Club
July News

The Storyteller Book Club’s pick for July is The Age of Blessing, by Vickie Blackwell Morrow. Vickie, a freelance writer, poet, and editor, was born in a small town in North Carolina. She is a member of NCWN. Vickie is the wife of a retired Air Force Chaplain, the mother of two adult children, an adjunct instructor, and an active member in her church and community.

In The Age of Blessing, the golden years are tarnished for Corinthia Pearl Jacobs, a proud Daughter of the Confederacy, and Ada Passmore, a Civil Rights activist from the North. Both Cori and Ada have strong constitutions shaped by their respective past experiences and environments. When circumstances force them to share a home, they must confront the prevalent racial, social, economic, political, and religious challenges posed by society. Their electrifying pasts collide with their shared present when their relationship faces its greatest challenge—the 2008 election. Will things ever be the same?
