Connecting to literature is a pastime we, as mothers, should all indulge in. Good books are good for the soul and for your intellect. In addition to the great contemporary fiction that graces store shelves, don’t forget about the classics. We recommend anything by James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston, Alice Walker and Toni Morrison. Did you know you can read previously unpublished plays written by Zora Neale Walker on the Library of Congress Web site? They’re definitely worth reading.
