Enjoy discussing a literary classic 

On Saturday, March 10, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Austin Branch Library, 5615 W. Race Ave., there will be a book discussion on Zora Neal Hurston's "Their Eyes Were Watching God." 

Out of print for almost thirty years--due largely to initial audiences' rejection of its strong black female protagonist--Hurston's classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.
