The Price of the Ticket: James Baldwin Reading Group
This group is for "Coloured" folks in the East Bay/Oakland area who want to read the works of this American novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic James Baldwin. We gather together once a month and discuss what we read. For such a long time I, Sharon, have had a fascination with the work of this amazing writer, his vision and the clarity of expressing that vision.
Join us in a reading/discussion group exploring one of the major American voices of the 20th century. We will work our way through "The Price of the Ticket" an important anthology of virtually every major piece of nonfiction, short and long written by Mr. Baldwin. This is a magnificent introduction to the works of Mr. Baldwin, it combines his intensely private experiences with very deep examination of Black-White relations.
