Next month is the Twenty-Third National African American Read-In. The event is sponsored by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English.Churches, schools, book clubs, and bookstores all over America will get together to read and discuss books by African Americans. Doret from The Happy Nappy Bookseller and Edi (CrazyQuilts) came up with the great idea to host an online read-in next month.
Here’s the details:
Four books were chosen for the poll below. Readers can only vote for one book. I’ll announce the results on Monday, January 30th. That gives anyone who wants to participate enough time to grab a copy and read along with us. The read-in is set for February 22nd. Discussions questions will be posted on this blog along with Doret and Edi’s blogs. I hope you all join us for this event.
Have you read any of the books listed in the poll? Are there any that catch your interest?
Edit: I’ve just added two more books to the poll.
