Next TU Book Club meeting to focus on ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God’

Anne Larson will discuss Zora Neale Hurston’s “Their Eyes Were Watching God” at the next TU Book Club meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, March 18, in the Campus Center Classroom on TU’s Forbes Campus.

Published in 1937 this novel, set in central and southern Florida in the early 20th century, follows Janie Crawford. As she matures from a teenage girl into a woman, Janie realizes that people must learn about life for themselves, just as people can only go to God for themselves.

Hurston’s novel was included in Time Magazine’s 2005 list of the 100 Best English-language Novels Published Since 1923.

Originally from Augusta, Georgia, Book Club presenter Anne Larson received a bachelor’s degree in English from Agnes Scott College and a master’s degree in teaching from Duke University. Larson taught senior and Advanced Placement English for 50 years. Forty of those years were spent teaching at Brookwood School in Thomasville, where she created many school’s ceremonies and traditions.

The Book Club meeting is part of Arts for the Community at Thomas University (ACTU). For more information, call 229-227-6964 or email Visit to learn about other ACTU events.
