Executive Director’s Book Club: “Their Eyes Were Watching God”

February 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Florida Humanities’ Executive Director Nashid Madyun and Zora Neale Hurston Scholar Rae Chesney for a discussion on Hurston’s book Their Eyes Were Watching God. This Harlem Renaissance classic follows Janie Crawford, a young African American woman, as she tells the story of the past 20 years of her life to her best friend Pheoby.
Zora Neale Hurston was born in Alabama in 1891, but raised in the historic African-American town of Eatonville, Florida. She was one of the pre-eminent writers of 20th-century African-American literature, penning novels, short stories and plays. She was also known for her renowned work as an anthropologist, folklorist and filmmaker.
