what i'm reading now

This book by Pulitzer Prize winning, Rick Bragg, is an account of life in the red dirt poverty of Alabama. It describes the suffering and sacrifices his mother went through to raise three boys and protect them from their mean alcoholic father and the shame of being poor in the south.

You've made me put this on my list, and I'll call my library for it tomorrow morning. Thanks so much!
