*Post Revision: Utter shame on me for leaving out one of my favorite books and one of my family’s favorite films: National Book Award-winning The Women of Brewster Place by Gloria Naylor (book 1982/tv miniseries 1989). One peril of a very thankful challenge like National Blog Posting Month is pressure and speediness, so we shall chalk this major oversight up to that…do read that book/see that film if you can!
