Tuesday, March 27, 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. The Help by Kathryn Stockett, a much talked and best- selling book about, we are finally catching up with the rest of the world! In writing about such a troubled time in American history, Southern-born Stockett takes a big risk, one that paid off enormously. Critics praised Stockett's skillful depiction of the ironies and hypocrisies that defined an era, without resorting to depressing or controversial clichés. Rather, Stockett focuses on the fascinating and complex relationships between vastly different members of households in Jackson, Mississippi.
