fine biography for middle school children

on 12/7/2012

This book was very easy to read and very informative. I decided to pack it in my suitcase and read it on trips. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in books by Zora just to get a background on the author. I have read the Bluest Eye and Their Eyes Were Watching God and found those books well written and interesting. Read More

From the Publisher
Editors Note From beginning to end, Zora Neale Hurston's life was extraordinary. She packed so much into her sixty-nine years that we might even say her "lives" were extraordinary.  As a young and confident girl who grew up in an all-black community in Eatonville, Florida, she didnt experience the prejudice that many African Americans felt at the time . In fact, she was so confident as a child, that she thought the moon followed her wherever she went. Such confidence could only lead one down the path of becoming a writer, and so Zora Neale Hurston traveled to New York City where she met prominent African American writers such as Langston Hughes, Alain Locke, and many more figures of the Harlem Renaissance. Unfortunately, despite writing such luminary works as Their Eyes Were Watching God, she was always tight on money. Though she took odd jobs as a housemaid and as the personal assistant to an actress, Zora often found herself in abject poverty. Through it all, Zora kept writing. And though none of her books sold more than a thousand copies while she was alive, she was rediscovered a decade later by a new generation of readers, who knew they had found an important voice of American Literature. Authors Judith Bloom Fradin and Dennis Brindell Fradin reveal to us Zora Neale Hurstons captivating charm and relentless determination with precision, humor, and candor--just the way Zora herself would have done it.
