Toni Morrison's Beloved is one of the most powerful novels of the 20th century. Set in Ohio after the Civil War, the novel tells the story of Sethe and how the legacy of slavery impacts her life after the institution is abolished.

Thurston High's English Department wants to give their 11th grade American Literature students access to this great work and to more works that illustrate and explore the diverse history of our country.

What We Need 

A single copy of Beloved is $18.03

We need 40 copies to begin integrating the book into Ms. Comerford's curriculum

$100 will provide 5 books
$200 will provide 10 books

Every dollar counts!
