As part of celebrating our 10 year anniversary of partnership with the Presbytery of Zimbabwe, the Presbytery of Denver will host a book discussion led by The Reverend Russ Kane. We will be reading Zenzele: A Letter For My Daughter by Nozipo Maraire.
Maraire evokes the moving story of a mother reaching out to her daughter, a student at Harvard, to share the lessons life has taught her and bring the two closer than ever before. Interweaving history and memories, disappointments and dreams, Zenzele tells the tales of Zimbabwe's struggle for independence and the men and women who shaped it: Zenzele's father, an outspoken activist lawyer; her aunt, a schoolteacher by day and secret guerrilla fighter by night; and her cousin, a maid and a spy.
This event promises to provide insight and deeper understanding into the life and culture of our brothers and sisters in Zimbabwe. In so doing, we would expect to see our own lives, culture and faith in a fresh light, too.
The book study will be held at Central Presbyterian Church at 7:00 P.M. on Tuesday, September 29th. To learn more about the book and the author visit this page.
