Intro, and all that jazz
Hello! I am a HUGE fan of Alice Walker's. Almost ended up going to Sarah Lawrence mainly for the fact that she went there. She was one of the writer's that inspired me to write. Woo hoo.

Have any of you read her new book, Now Is The Time To Open Your Heart ?

It's amazing so far. Tell me what you think.

Question: My friend, Erin, and I love Alice Walker. Her roommate, Jill, is an avid reader, but has never read anything by Alice Walker...which makes all of us very sad. So my question is this...which book should we start her on?
Erin is going for Temple of My Familiar, but I'm inclined to start with The Color Purple, which is more mainstream and a quick read, and then on to Possessing the Secret of Joy.

Anyone have an opinion?

You live, you learn

You know how sometimes you can be ignorant to something, but you didn't know you were until you've got it staring you right in the face? Well, that's what Alice Walker has been like, for me. The Color Purple has been one of my favorite movies.. ever since I knew of its existence. Then I found the book, and it became a favorite. What never occurred to me was to search for other things she may have written.

Imagine my surprise when, scouring the poetry shelves at the library, I came across TWO poetry books written by her. Of course, I checked them out right away. I had to know what they were like.

I have to admit, there are a few poems I don't connect with because I've never had much travelling experience, especially to Africa. But there are others that were lovely to read. One such poem is the following:


Despite The Hunger
by Alice Walker

Despite
the hunger
we cannot
possess
more
than
this;
Peace
in a garden
of
our own.

from 'Absolute Trust in the Goodness of the Earth'


Hopefully, I'll be able to locate other of her works. All in good time.
