Happy Black History Month! Here’s a handy reading list of some of my favorite books by black authors:
The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead (hear him speak later this year in Scranton!)
Miles Morales : Spider-man by Jason Reynolds
Sing, unburied, sing by Jesmyn Ward
Ordinary Light by Tracy K. Smith
If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin
Ayiti by Roxane Gay
If you are looking to widen your knowledge of black history in our area, attend “Remembering and Understanding Black Scrantonians” by Glynis Johns on Friday, Feb. 22 from 6-7:30 at the Abington Community Library.
Throughout February, the art of Travis Prince can be see on display in the Ryon Community Room. Listen to Mr. Prince speak at “An Evening with the Artist: Travis Prince” on Thursday, Feb. 14 from 6-7 PM at the Abington Community Library.
