Four New Reads to Celebrate Black History Month

CITY COLLEGE–Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson

Author of critically acclaimed Brown Girl Dreaming and Another Brooklyn, Jacqueline Woodson is back again with another poignant hit. Red at the Bone is a story for the ages. With powerful prose, Woodson uncovers the role that history and community have played in the experiences, decisions, and relationships of the protagonist’s life. This novel is contemporary fiction with a strong hint of literary criticism, exploring what it means to be young and black in America.
