Jazzanooga hosts discussion at Wafflez Factory
Some of us are glad we come from the land where time moves slower and sweet tea flows freely. Jazzanooga has assisted in our search to celebrate that heritage—the good parts.
There’s no better way to say you’re proud to be a Southerner than discussing literature set below the Mason-Dixon over an obscenely large portion of chicken and waffles. Jazzanooga is kicking off the “Big Nine Book Club” with riveting discussion and a meal not to be missed at Wafflez Factory on Thursday, Aug. 13. Harper Lee’s “Go Set A Watchman” is the book in the spotlight.
As Lee’s first published work in 50 years, “Go Set a Watchman” has garnered thousands of reviews from both thoroughly impressed and sorely disappointed readers. Whether you love it or you hate it, this is a book that, despite being written in the mid-20th century, has a lot to say about the racial tension and atmosphere of exclusion being felt in America today.
The conversation is sure to be just as filling as the meal at this book club meeting. Bonus? The first 20 people to RSVP through Eventbrite will get their chicken and waffles free of charge, courtesy of AnimateMLK.
