Radical Readers book of the month is Ponciá Vicêncio by Conceição Evaristo.

Poncia Vicencio is the story of a young Afro-Brazilian woman’s journey from the land of her enslaved ancestors to the emptiness of urban life. However, the generations of creativity, violence, and family cannot be so easily left behind as Poncia is heir to a mysterious psychic gift from her grandfather. Does this gift have the power to bring Poncia back from the emotional vacuum and absolute solitude that has overtaken her in the city? Do the elemental forces of earth, air, fire, and water mean anything in the barren urban landscape?

We will be discussing this mystical story of family, dreams, and hope on Oct. 24th, 2021. Reminder, you do not have to read/finish the book to join the conversation.
