their eyes were watching godOne of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston…perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.  Copies of the book available from BCCLS.
