Teaser Tuesday: The Help ~ Kathryn Stockett

July 28, 2009


  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

Lunch counter, the state fair, pool tables, hospitals. Number forty-seven I have to read twice, for its irony:

The Board shall maintain a separate building on separate grounds for the instruction of all blind persons of the colored race.

After several minutes, I make myself stop. I start to put the booklet back., telling myself I’m not writing a book about Southern legislation, this is a waste of my time. But then I realize, like  a shell cracking open in my head, there’s no difference between these government laws and Hilly building Aibileen a bathroom in the garage, except ten minutes’ worth of signatures in the state capital.” The Help by Kathryn Stockett p. 173-4
