Black History Month - Telling our Stories

We are celebrating Black History Month this year with a collection of novels and stories about the African-American experience or by African-American authors. Along with books by Zadie Smith, Toni Morrison, Langston Hughes, and James Baldwin, we are highlighting some children's books in our collection, books by Patricia McKissack, Jacqueline Woodson, and Julius Lester (check out his blog!) So on these snowy days, grab Show Way, curl up in a comfy chair, and learn about how quilts once served as secret maps for freedom-seeking slaves.
