This month we will discuss The House on Sugar Beach: In Search of a Lost African Childhood by Helene Cooper. Cooper combines deeply personal and wide-ranging political strands in her memoir. There's the halcyon early childhood in Africa, a history of the early settlement of Liberia, an account of the violent, troubled years as several regimes are overthrown, and the story of the family's exile to America. A journalist-as-a-young-woman narrative unfolds as Cooper reports the career path that led her from local to national papers in the U.S. All are welcome to join us in discussing this fascinating book.
