It's About Color's


'One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life' by Bliss Broyard. I read this book in three sittings - Plus, two middle of the night wake up's where I read for hours more. ONE DROP is not only a compassionate family memoir but it also opens the discussion of race in the U.S. What does it mean to be black in this country? What does it mean to be white? Does your race define the person you are? Broyard, also the author of the collection of stories MY FATHER, DANCING, deftly blends personal memoir with a thoughtful reflection of racial identity in America.
'Going Gray' by Anne Kreamer. Every woman over 40 could learn from "Going Gray." Just because hair is gray doesn't mean old and frumpy. Think Meryl Streep in "Devil Wears Prada." Those ladies of a "certain age" that continue to dye into their 70's and 80's are fooling no one. What a relief not to worry about roots. This is Definitely a Must Read!
