Fiction Hardcover Book of the Month - October:
The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates!

The Water Dancer is a novel that astonishes, conjuring up a whole world in which I became immersed. The atrocity inflicted on generations of African American families during the time of slavery—the forced separation of families--takes center stage here (which ironically couldn’t be more topical now!), and it is the mark of a great novel like The Water Dancer that it can help transform how we view our shared history. I loved the sweeping scope of this novel, the book’s beautiful, haunting dust jacket reflecting the haunting, luminous prose contained within, and while confronting the brutality of slavery head-on, the novel is still able to celebrate the grace and humanity of its characters (including one from real-life, Harriet Tubman!) . ED LOVED AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDS!
