This book is hard to get through, but impossible to put down!

It is a book that pulls no punches and refuses to sugarcoat anything and these are far too rare.

$23.00
ISBN: 9780399581427

The Enchanted: A Novel Cover Image
$15.99
ISBN: 9780062285515
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Harper Perennial - February 24th, 2015

Think of a magical place...You could have picked literally anywhere but I am willing to bet any amount of money that you didn’t think “prison” and even less likely, “death row”, and that is exactly the setting that Rene Denfield chose for her novel “The Enchanted”. The story is told primarily through the eyes of a self-imposed mute on death row with a love of books and reading and it is amazing. Other major characters include a woman whose job it is to get death row inmates’ sentences reduced to life in jail, an inmate who has accepted and welcomes his death sentence and a warden who, though he may be naturally good, has been hardened by his job. This book is amazing for so many reasons, it’s sad, moving, heartwarming and (obviously) magical, but the fact that it humanizes a population that is perpetually demonized makes it necessary. No matter your stance on capital punishment this is well worth a read. -Cliff's January Staff Pick, 2015

 


Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching: A Young Black Man's Education Cover Image
$15.99

Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Bold Type Books - October 3rd, 2017

To simply call this book amazing would be to do it a disservice. It's so much more than that. This book serves as a tribute to all of the young, black, marginalized girls, boys, men and women who've unjustly lost their lives and futures at the hands of a system that refused to see them. With this book Mychal demands that you see them.
