Jacqueline Luckett February Host #BLACKLITCHAT

Twitter Book Club Discussion: PASSING LOVE

Join us for our #blacklitchat Twitter party. We are excited and honored that Jacqueline Luckett is our February host for this chat. We will be discussing her sophomore novel, PASSING LOVE(February 2012).

Jacqueline worked in sales for Xerox for twenty years. During that time she married, raised a family and took creative writing classes where she reignited her love of writing. In 2004, Jacqueline formed the Finish Party (featured in O Magazine, October 2007) along with seven other women writers-of-color. The group provides strong support for each other's writing, good meals, friendship and fun. Since then Jacqueline has written two novels, Jacqueline is the author of two novels, PASSING LOVE and SEARCHING FOR TINA TURNER.

Nicole-Marie Handy has loved all things French since she was a child. After the death of her best friend, determined to get out of her rut, she goes to Paris, leaving behind a marriage proposal. While there, Nicole chances upon an old photo of her father-lovingly inscribed, in his hand, to a woman Nicole has never heard of. What starts as a vacation quickly becomes an investigation into his relationship to this mystery woman.

Moving back and forth in time between the sparkling Paris of today and the jazz-fueled city filled with expatriates in the 1950s, Passing Love is the story of two women dealing with lost love, secrets, and betrayal...and how the City of Light may hold all of the answers.

“Luckett weaves a fascinating portrait of women of color who defy family and tradition to follow love and chase success.”- Publishers Weekly

"Luckett is a writer to watch and admire."—ZZ PACKER, author of Drinking Coffee Elsewhere
