In honor of Black History Month, did you know that February is also African American Read In Month? This is a great reminder, if you need it, to diversify the kinds of stories and authors you read throughout the year and your life (and NOT an endorsement of only reading black authors during the month of Feb., dammit!). And LSLT is a great chance for us to share recommendations here!
If you’re interested, here’s more info on the National Read In and ways to participate:
So, for today’s LSLT, please tell us, which African American authors have you been loving lately and what books should we start with for those authors?
And, as always, please tell us:
- What book did you most recently finish?
- What are you reading now?
- What’s next on your “to read” list?
- Do you have/need any book recs?
