|Currently reading||Saint Maizie by Jami Attenberg|
|Next meeting||Wednesday, July 19, 2017|
|Time||11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.|
Saint Mazie is a novel inspired by the life of Mazie Gordon-Phillips who was “the Queen of the Bowery” in New York during the 1920’s-1940. Maizie was known for walking alone in the streets of New York City helping the downtrodden. She was committed to the NYC community and gave all the money she had to the homeless she passed. She got them into flop houses, called ambulances, gave them soap and train tickets home.
Jami Attenberg used Maizie’s diary and then her own imagination to create the character of Maizie in her novel. Attenberg realistically brings Maizie to life. She’s a hard drinking, tough talking broad that took no grief from anyone. But she had a heart the size of Texas and helped anyone in her path.
