Toni Morrison’s Beloved | @MuslimBookClub
The Sydney Muslim Book Club and the Alchemy of Truth bring you our third Book Club session, discussing Toni Morrison’s Beloved.
In 1987, Toni Morrison’s Beloved won the Pulitzer Prize. In 1992, with Beloved still widely regarded as her masterpiece, Morrison was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Three legs make a stool: This past month, in a New York Times poll of 200 critics, writers, and editors, Beloved was named “the single best work of American fiction published in the last twenty-five years”

The Sydney Muslim Book Club’s third selection was this powerful story about love, life and survival with slavery as a back story.
It was an enriching insightful experience or us, and though as we mentioned this book was not written for us as a target audience. It was still an important read.
