For The RootI write my annual piece on books to look forward to being published in 2018 by writers of the global African diaspora. Feel free to email/tweet me any amazing book titles I did not uncover. Happy reading!

New Piece Up at The Root


For The Root, I write my annual year-end round up of 16 wonderful books published by black authors in 2017. Others great ones I would have loved to include are Bunk, by Kevin Young, The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin, Ordinary Beast by Nicole Sealey, I’m So Fine, A List of Famous Men & What I Had On by Khadijah Queen, & Lower Ed by Tracey Clayton…but don’t worry, I’m showing some love for those books elsewhere soon soon.
