The Help by Kathryn Stockett
This is a very good book! Set in Jackson, Mississippi in the early 1960's, it tells the intertwined stories of three women. Two of the women are black maids in white households and the third is a privileged white woman who recognizes the prejudice in her world and wants to write about it. Don't be intimidated by the length of this book--it reads quickly. It would make a great book club discussion book.
