The Color of Water

I've been trying to catch up with my online book club today (just so you know where this came from). Now I have a book recommendation for any of you who might read this (I love all 6 of you!)
The Color of Water by James McBride
I read this book a year or so ago, and loved it. It is a memoir about the author trying to find himself as a multiracial man and in turn discovering who his mother really is. The chapters alternate between ones written by McBride and ones taken from conversations he tape-recorded with his mother (which are from her point of view). It is inspiring and it will make you think. So, read it, now!
