Sue Monk Kidd Picks Today Show Book Club Selection
Sue Monk Kidd chose Stephanie Kallos’ debut novel Broken For You as the December selection for The Today Show Book Club. Each month The Today Show invites a well known author to pick a book for their book club. Sue announced her selection on the show December 14, 2004. She appeared on the live segment along with the book’s author Stephanie Kallos, and spoke of her reasons for choosing Kallos’ book, referring to it as “a moving and redemptive story filled with hope.” Kidd cited the novel’s beautiful language, eccentric characters and its powerful theme of taking what is broken inside us and reconfiguring it into mosaics of meaning and beauty.
