WILMINGTON, MA — In the April Book Stew episode, you’ll meet author Sanderia Faye of Dallas via Skype. Sanderia will tell us about how she “found her passion” with help from Oprah, and all about Mourner’s Bench, her novel of the Civil Rights era set in rural Arkansas.
Mourner’s Bench won the Hurston Wright Award for Debut Fiction in 2016. The award, named after Zora Neale Hurston and Richard Wright, is the oldest in the country honoring authors of color. Sanderia’s novel was also recommended by Beyonce in her syllabus for her album “Lemonade”.
I promise that if you buy/borrow Mourner’s Bench you will be enthralled.
