The Bluest Eye Roundtable at The Bottom of Heaven

The Bottom of Heaven is hosting a Roundtable event in honor of the 40th anniversary of Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye from June 28 through July 9. There will be discussion and posts from some wonderful bloggers and commentators. Here's a quote from the announcement post:

Is The Bluest Eye still relevant after four decades, does it still have something left to teach us in the Obama era? What moments in the story continue to touch and trouble you as you read? What scenes, characters, and passages have the most lasting impact? How would a little girl like Pecola fare in today’s society? We’d love to heard your thoughts on our posts and if you haven’t read the novel, perhaps now is a good time to start.

If you've read the book or are interested in learning more about it, go on over to The Bottom of Heaven to learn about who will be posting, and subscribe there so you can keep updated on each day's posts.
