Ready to Join?

Our first book for Protected content "I know Why the Caged Bird Sings" by maya Angelou. This is a poetic and powerful autobiographical novel that will touch your heart!
Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local "powhitetrash." At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age—and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns that love for herself, the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors ("I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare") will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned.

Looking forward to welcoming you to our first meeting for Protected content ! Once again we are meeting online, considering the restrictions applying in Athens.

Stay safe and enjoy the holiday season!
