2012 National African American Read-In

Posted on 26 January 2012 Thursday

This year, I’m joining Doret@HappyNappyBookseller and Vasilly@1330V to host a book event for the National African American Read-In sponsored by the Black Caucus of the NCTE and the NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English). We’ll be reading a book for the month of February and discussing it online. To decide the book, the three of us selected six books for participants from which the book we read will be selected.

Good Fortune by Noni Carter
Fences by August Wilson
A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines
Topdog/Underdog by Suzi Lori Parks
Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes
Pull by B.A. Binns

The poll is on Vasilly’s blog. The title selected will be announced on Monday 30 January. The Read-In will begin on 22 February and discussions will be held throughout the week on each of our three blogs.

I hope you’re able to choose just one!
