Our book of the month over at the Freaky Thinker Book Club is An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. We took recommendations from members and then created a poll to select our read.
This is my second time with this book and I’m excited to see if I gain any new insights or points to ponder. My first time reading this was earlier this year as a part of a book club I participated in during a cruise. It was the first time doing something like that and really opened my eyes to a few things. Some people hated the book and, when digging further, it seemed to be because they felt they couldn’t relate as the book was about people of color. I didn’t (and still don’t) understand that thought process as that would cover a lot of literature available to us but I have some unfortunate and sad (to me) thoughts about why this was uniquely unrelatable to them. In any event, I loved it and am excited to explore it once again.
If you are a freaky thinker (or want to be), join us over on Facebook for some conversation and fun. We’ll be selecting a book for January 2020 (can you believe a new decade is just around the corner??) soon. If you’ve got a suggestion, be sure to let us know.
A Note from the Editor
This website is a labor of love filled primarily with curated content from many people and places. Any content that comes from elsewhere will be shown with quotes or links. My desire is to create a space for others to gather who are on a spiritual journey, doing their own internal work and have a deep calling to make the world a better place. Whenever possible (mostly timing), I will share my thoughts around the content I shared...add my perspective...but sometimes I know I won't be able to do this and still want to be able to share in the moment...when it feels relevant to me and hopefully relevant for you. I hope you find value in the conversations at this table and will join me on a regular basis. You can also find me on Instagram and on Facebook.
