home book HOME by Toni Morrison has been chosen for this year's community One Book/One New Paltz read.  One Book is a reading project, one of many across the country, that annually selects a book for local residents to read as a basis for a shared experience of celebrating and promoting reading and community.

HOME is a slim book and an accessible read, but it nonetheless grapples with important and powerful themes relating to Black culture in the mid-20th century:  racism, individual and community, and good and evil.  It raises the question of whether any of us can ever go home again, while at the same time acknowledging the healing power of home.
