Beat the cold, read some heat!
There is not a book on this display that you’d regret reading. If you do nothing else for Black History Month, do this: READ A BOOK! Ms. Roberts Griffith (me) is constantly buying you (dear student) the newest, greatest, most talked about books for your reading pleasure. Whatever you prefer – fiction, young adult, poetry, plays, essays or memoirs – you have no excuse for not checking out at least one (and up to 5 at a time!!!) of these fabulous books.
I ran out of display space, so if you look on the circulation desk, you will find a mini-display of a variety of books that feature biracial stories. You would do well to choose one that appeals to you – have you read Barack Obama’s memoir yet?
If you still don’t know where to start, why not joint the #ReadingBlackout? It’s a campaign to read only black authors for February in support of stories by people of colour. Of course, I would suggest that you don’t stop at February, and read a diverse selection of books all year round. But if you need suggestions, your fellow students have written theirs on the whiteboard wall in the library learning commons (LLC). If we have the books, you don’t need to look further than underneath the board.
