This month, the Village Literary Club will read Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye (226 pp, 1970). It is Morrison's first novel and is set in 1941, in Morrison's home town of Lorraine, Ohio. The book tells the story of an African American girl from a poor and abusive family who wishes for blue eyes. It treats controversial topics, racism and incest, and is one of the most banned books in the US. The book should stimulate an interesting discussion as members of the Club take up the issue of why some books are banned.

Location: Conservatory room at The Lockwood, beside the Village Office.
