Creating a Short List

For our in-person discussion on January 17, we will work off a short list of suggested titles. Which books would you like to see included? Do you have any titles that have been missed?

Our deadline for the creation of the short list: November 30.

You have a great assortment of books on the blog! Here are the titles I hope make your short list:

The Rock and the River by Kekla Magoon

Amiri & Odette - A Love Story by Walter Dean Myers, paintings by Javaka Steptoe

Sweethearts of Rhythm by Marilyn Nelson, illustrated by Jerry Pinkney

Bad News for Outlaws by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson, illustrated by R. Gregory Christie

I didn't see Testing the Ice - A True Story about Jackie Robinson by Sharon Robinson, illustrated by Kadir Nelson, but I think it would make a nice addition as well.
