Winter was recommended to me from so many Black ladies. They said it was so profound. The best read ever. Stuff like that.

I was in a small town library yesterday reading the back cover of the book when an old White woman ran up to me and said not to put the book down. She also said how profound and stuff.

Caught me of guard.

In this town? A White woman, an OLD White woman, is raving to me about a Black female author who is not Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, or Lorraine Hansberry?

I must be missing the boat, I figured. lol

I got a few pages in while at the library. I don't know what to think.

I'm uncomfortable at parts, but I'll push on.

I'm going to get the book. Soon, hopefully.

I hope that all of the hype I heard before hasn't created an unrealistic expectation.
