Help Us Pick a Book for Our August Book Club Selection

Recommended Posts

Pick a book for our Reading listWhat book would you like to read and discuss?

 

We have decided to open up the process of selecting the books on a reading list to readers, authors, educators, publishers, or anyone who has an interest in discussing a book on AALBC.

 

We are looking for suggestions for our August reading list here.  The only criteria is that the book be; written by, or about, Black people; and it should be in print and available for purchase.  All genres in fiction and nonfiction are acceptable.

 

The book does not need to be on AALBC.com. If the chosen book is not on AALBC.com, it will be added.

 

Simply reply to this post to suggest a book for August. When you suggest a book tell us why you are suggesting it; that will help us (myself and the club's moderator Tony Lindsay) chose a book from the titles suggested.

 

The August book will be selected from books suggested here.

My suggestion for the August Book would be "Blissfield" by Heather Neff.  This book is a coming-of-age tale of a girl named Bethany who arrives in Blissfield, NC to live with her grandmother and befriends two young misfits in the town named Gideon and Nina Price.  All three of them have been traumatized by their upbringing and form a bond that is shaken to the core by events that happen in the book, as they grow into adulthood
