Moving forward for our English class, I would like to read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. It is a book that has been on my mind for a long time, even though I don't know anything about it really. I've also been thinking about Zora Neale Hurston from our conversations with Monique about anthropology since Hurston herself was an anthropologist. As I was talking about my choice with some classmates today, Creighton offered to lend me her copy and told me about how much this book meant to her. She handed me a beautiful edition of this book, witha quote from one of my favorite authors Alice Walker on the front: "There is no book more important to me than this one." I don't exactly know what I'll be focusing on yet, but I think that will become much clearer as I read.
