Books to keep on your radar:  

GOOD COMPANY by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney is a novel that explores the enduring bonds of family, marriage, friendship, and motherhood.  With deliciously flawed characters, it tells a big-hearted story of the lifelong relationships that both wound and heal us, and all the things that get in the way of both friendships and families.  

 

FOOTNOTES by Caseen Gaines tells the story of how Sissle and Blake, along with comedians Flournoy Miller and Aubrey Lyles, overcame poverty, racism, and violence to harness the energy of the Harlem Renaissance and produce a Broadway hit that launched the careers of many of the twentieth century's most beloved Black performers. While also breaking down barriers between Black and White communities at a crucial point in our history.
