Books to curl up with: a librarian's musings

Tuesday, September 04, 2007


Several years ago I fell in love with Cunningham's book Crowns, which was the stories of women in their Sunday church hats and a story in their lives. It was a wonderful book that just touched me deeply.

Cunningham has teamed up with noted author Connie Briscoe for Jewels: 50 phenomenal Black women over 50. The format is the same - a black and white portrait and a two or three page story from the women involved. This time some of the women were famous and some less known to the public, but all would be considered very successful. I am wondering if that is why I enjoyed this book just a little less than Crowns. However it was a good book and the women's roads to success interesting.
