African American Read-In

Hey guys! It's been a while since anyone has posted here. We definitely need to change that!

In case you didn't know, yesterday I put up a post on my blog about February's African American Read-In. It's a tradition that's been going on all over the United States for the past twenty-three years. Groups all over the country get together to read and discuss a book by an African American author. Doret, Edi, and I have decided to host our own online read-in. 

Six books were picked and readers can vote on which book we discuss next month. Our list:
  • Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes
  • Good Fortune by Noni Carter
  • Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks
  • A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines
  • Fences by August Wilson
  • Pull by B.A. Binns
