Happy Birthday Alice…

In Daily Musings on February 9, 2012 at 9:56 am

Alice Walker that is! Happy Birthday to the brilliant author who gave us The Colour Purple, The Temple of My Familiar, Meridian, The Chicken Chronicles and many other great literary works. She is best known for her novel “The Colour Purple” which really put her on the map,  and for which she won a Pulitzer Prize.  As you already know, the book was made into a beautiful Oscar nominated (11) movie.

In 2008 Alice walker wrote an open letter to new elected President Barack Obama, Alice Walker addresses the new President as “Brother Obama”.  Read the letter for yourself @ http://www.theroot.com/views/open-letter-barack-obama

Visit Alice Walker’s new website @ http://alicewalkersgarden.com/  to get more information about her.  If you haven’t read The Colour Purple in a long time (or haven’t read it at all), maybe it’s time to read it again, or finally pick it up.  If time is an issue, get some popcorn and a glass of wine, settle on the sofa and watch the movie to celebrate Alice’s birthday.
