Who is your favorite author?

Every Wednesday we are going to give you readers a chance to tell us about different aspects of books and reading in your life.   One or more of the Page Turners will answer the question and then we would like to hear from you!

Gloria Naylor


My favorite author of all time is Gloria Naylor.  She is most famously known for The Women of Brewster Place which was also a very popular TV-Movie.  I have read all of her books multiple times.  Some of my favorites include Mama Day (which I reviewed here), Bailey’s Cafe, and Linden Hills. I love her intricate story telling, depth of character development, and realistic dialogue and subject matter.  I feel she is one of the most important and dynamic 20th century American writers.
