In anticipation of the new OWN series Queen Sugar, I decided to pick up a copy of the book that its based on by Natalie Baszile. My goal is to finish “Queen Sugar” before the premiere of the Ava DuVernay directed series in September. I flew through 80+ pages the first day that I purchased it so I don’t think this deadline will be a problem! So far it’s quite entertaining. I think reading it during this sweltering August heat allows me to further transform myself into the story of a city woman relocating to the bayous of Louisiana to revive a sugar cane farm passed down from her deceased father. Check out the trailer for the series below and support the book that spawned the series!
