Next on my book list
My friend Jane D'Cunha recommends this book, "The Help," by Kathryn Stockett. Publisher's Weekly writes: "It's set during the civil rights movement in Jackson, Miss., where black women were trusted to raise white children but not to polish the household silver. Eugenia Skeeter Phelan is just home from college in 1962, and, anxious to become a writer, is advised to hone her chops by writing about what disturbs you."
