"God Help The Child" by Toni Morrison

Wednesday, November 06, 2024, 6 p.m.

God Help the Child follows Bride and the people she meets, all of them in one way or another deeply affected by treatment they received from adults when they were children. Bride’s mother and father cannot love her as much as they should because of her much darker skin color. The novel follows the implications of that on her self-worth and how she conducts various relationships, whether with her boyfriend Booker or with family and friends. The nuances of the African American experience and the never-ending effects of a troubled childhood provide the texture for this acclaimed novel.

Morrison, a Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winner best known for her novel Beloved, died in 2019.
