Truro Library Book Group – “The Color of Water” by James McBride

May 29 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Truro Library Book Group
May selection is The Color of Water by James McBride

Books will be available at the circulation desk a few weeks before the discussion.

Who is Ruth McBride Jordan? A self-declared “light-skinned” woman evasive about her ethnicity, yet steadfast in her love for her twelve black children. James McBride, journalist, musician, and son, explores his mother’s past, as well as his own upbringing and heritage, in a poignant and powerful debut, The Color Of Water: A Black Man’s Tribute to His White Mother.

“As lively as a novel, a well-written, thoughtful contribution to the literature on race.”—The Washington Post Book World

The Book group is now meeting inside (or outside when possible) the Library. If you would like to join virtually, please email Maggie to receive a Zoom invite.
