RITA MAE BROWN

BY: Chad Rhodes

Rita Mae Brown is an outstanding writer.

In 1973 I had the opportunity to read Ruby Fruit Jungle at the tender age of 13 years old. What an eye opening adventure. I laughed, I cried, but mainly I wondered what it was like to be these characters. Every day after school I would rush home and shut my door and dive into the book. I would read until my mom called us for dinner. I thank Rita Mae Brown for opening my mind and giving me the opportunity to read and experience this book.
