 Sept 28th 9:30 am Beloved / by Toni Morrison 


After arriving in Ohio via the underground railroad, Sethe is followed by her former owner. She kills her two-year-old daughter rather than allow her to be returned to slavery. Her house is haunted by the baby's spirit, Beloved, who is driven out but returns as a young woman of twenty. Sethe becomes consumed with this spirit-made-flesh, and she deteriorates both physically and mentally. Denver, Sethe's living daughter, tries to provide for the family. The women of the community drive out the spirit, but it may be too late for Sethe.. Books & Authors
