February 24, 2016, Wednesday morning -- Reading Angela Flournoy

Usually, in scouting for readers, I find people reading the news in the morning and books in the afternoon, which was why I was so happy to see, at 7-something in the morning, on my walk to work through the Ingleside neighborhood, this reader enjoying the morning sun with a book.

(The picture of the book is fuzzy because the gate was broken and I had to take the picture from a distance then crop it.)
She is reading The Turner House, by Angela Flournoy, which she learned about from NPR.  It's about a family, and their home, in Detroit.

Her favorite author has been Steinbeck since she read East of Eden when she was ten.
