Betty Smith’s first novel – and today’s prompt – A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, was published in 1943. Loosely autobiographical, the book’s theme is one of overcoming obstacles, especially poverty.
About the title tree, Smith writes: “If there was only one tree like that in the world, you would think it was beautiful. But because there are so many, you just can’t see how beautiful it really is.”
So you could go several directions with today’s subject. Or you could just go read one of the best books ever published. Just don’t forget to snap a photo and post in on FB and IG.
