Biography & Memoir Book Club: The Yellow House

Wednesday, January 11, 2023

Join the Through Their Eyes Book Club in reading The Yellow House by Sarah Broom. In 1961, Sarah M. Broom’s mother Ivory Mae bought a shotgun house in the then-promising neighborhood of New Orleans East and built her world inside of it. Ivory Mae raised twelve children and Yellow House would become Ivory Mae’s thirteenth and most unruly child. Broom’s The Yellow House tells a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America’s most mythologized cities. This is the story of a mother’s struggle against a house's entropy, and that of a prodigal daughter who left home only to reckon with the pull that home exerts, even after the Yellow House was wiped off the map after Hurricane Katrina.(Amazon)
