#ReadSoulLit Photo Challenge – Day 9 Published in Your Birth Year

img_2456Day 9 – Published in your Birth Year Of course Jubilee, duh! 😉

“Here is the classic–and true–story of Vyry, the child of a white plantation owner and his black mistress, a Southern Civil War heroine to rival Scarlett O’Hara. Vyry bears witness to the South’s prewar opulence and its brutality, to its wartime ruin and the subsequent promise of Reconstruction. It is a story that Margaret Walker heard as a child from her grandmother, the real Vyry’s daughter. The author spent thirty years researching the novel so that the world might know the intelligent, strong, and brave black woman called Vyry. The phenomenal acclaim this best-selling book has achieved from readers black and white, young and old, attests to her success. ” (Jubilee, back cover)

Black History Month 2016 – #ReadSoulLit

Hello all!  Yes Black History Month is just around the corner.  This February Danielle from OneSmallPaw and I are hosting a read along of a great American classic called Jubilee by Margaret Walker and a #ReadSoulLit photo challenge over on Instagram.  We’ve tried to make the photo challenge more engaging, with the hopes of seeing lots of new titles being  pictured; henceforth, showing the wide range of fantastic black authors and genres in which they write.  So I hope you’ll all try and join in for something at some point. If you don’t have Instagram you can follow me here to see what I post over there, but with a bit more explanation.  Don’t forget to link #ReadSoulLit when you post your pictures on Instagram and Twitter.  That helps people find us.  Currently, there are 900+ photos on Instagram, which should spark everyone’s interest in reading black authors.  Happy reading in February!
