The St. Martin’s Book Club meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the library.
This month’s selection is Cry Purple by Christine McDonald.
About the book:
Gritty and gripping, this is the story of the author’s journey from almost two decades of prostitution, crack addiction and prison to her present life of blindness, motherhood and happiness. She has survived brutality and discrimination with astonishing resilience and optimism. “Horrifying, heartbreaking, informative and inspiring.” “A story from the heart…a riveting memoir.” “An eye-opening view of life on the streets and beyond.” “Cry Purple chronicles a shattered life, rebuilt through sheer determination, courage and faith.” “The most inspiring story I’ve ever read. A must-read filled with hope.”
