Discussion of The Help at the Regulator

Thursday, 21 January,7pm, The Regulator Bookshop, 720 9th Street, Durham

You are invited to join in a discussion of  The Help, by Kathryn Stockett, led by Karla Holloway and Katharine Bartlett. On the NYT bestseller list since August, The Help, a novel about the relationships between African American maids and their white employers in 1960s Mississippi, “has the classic elements of a crowd pleaser: it features several feisty women enmeshed in a page-turning plot, clear villains and a bit of history,” writes the New York Times. Holloway is the James B. Duke Professor of English at Duke and holds appointments in the Law School, Women’s Studies, and African and African American Studies. Bartlett, the A. Kenneth Pye Professor of Law, is the former dean of the Duke Law School. This event is co-presented by The Regulator Bookshop and Durham County Library. Free and open to the public.
