Happy Birthday Gloria Naylor!

Gloria Naylor wrote one of my favorite books, “The Women of Brewster Place”. I probably consider it one of my favorites because it is full of women characters, colorful characters I could draw monologues from.

Naylor’s debut novel, The Women of Brewster Place, was published in 1982 and won the 1983 National Book Award in the category First Novel.[5] It was adapted as a 1989 television miniseries of the same name by Oprah Winfrey‘s Harpo Productions.

Naylor’s work is featured in such anthologies as Breaking Ice: An Anthology of Contemporary African-American Fiction (ed. Terry McMillan, 1990), Calling the Wind: Twentieth-Century African-American Short Stories (ed. Clarence Major, 1992) and Daughters of Africa (ed. Margaret Busby, 1992).
