Library Haul

Library Haul 2016

I’m proud to say that since the start of this year I have kept my nose in the middle of some great books, while struggling to finish a not-so-great-one. In my latest trip to the library I picked up a few books, which are more contemporary than what I’ve been reading as of 2011.  I’m extremely excited to start.

Jam on the vineJam on the Vine (Thorndike Press, 2015) – Lashonda Katrice Barnett
“A new American classic: a dynamic tale of triumph against the odds and the compelling story of one woman’s struggle for equality ”

 

 

 

Gathering of Waters

 Gathering of Waters (Akashic Books, 2012)

“a deeply engrossing tale narrated by the town of Money, Mississippi–a site both significant and infamous in our collective story as a nation. Money is personified in this haunting story, which chronicles its troubled history following the arrival of the Hilson and Bryant families.”

 

 

 

Queen Sugar

 Queen Sugar (Penguin Group, 2014)

“A mother-daughter story of reinvention—about an African American woman who unexpectedly inherits a sugarcane farm in Louisiana”

Thanks to a recommendation to read Flannery O’Connor I am now dead-locked in an obsession that may have gone a bit overboard in my latest trip to the library. Here are the books I picked up:

  • 365 Days – 365 plays —Suzan-Lori Parks
  • A Good Man is Hard to Find, and other stories —Flannery O’Connor
  • Collected Works –Flannery O’Connor
  • The Complete Stories —Flannery O’Connor
  • The Strange History of the American Quadroon: Free Women of Color in the Revolutionary Atlantic World –Emily Clark

As I sink into my beloved genre of Southern Goth I’ll be hitting the “renew item” button for quite a while.
