THE YEAR THE COLORED SISTERS CAME TO TOWN by Jacqueline Guidry
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 2001

"Sometimes ponderously paced, but Guidry piles up vast heaps of detail that ultimately reward the reader with a vivid evocation of this place, in this time. A small story told through a girl's widening eyes: evocative and charmingly written."
An endearing chronicle of the year 1957-58, when a black nun from Brooklyn comes to rural Louisiana to teach at a Catholic elementary school. Read full book review >
