Today's BTT Question:
What's the most informative book you've read recently?
Despite an unusually small number of nonfiction titles, I've still learned much from my reading this year. Good fiction can be informative, too!
The Help by Kathryn Stockett paints a vivid picture of the 1960's civil rights movement in Mississippi. Writer and budding civil rights activist, Skeeter Phelan, attempts to collect and publish the stories of several black maids. The novel is told in three voices (Skeeter and maids Aibileen and Minnie) and provides a stunning portrait of this era of unrest... from both sides of the issue. The Help will surely end up on my 'Best of' list this year!
