"An inspiring collection of essays by black women writers, curated by the founder of the popular book club Well-Read Black Girl, on the importance of recognizing ourselves in literature. Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives--but not everyone regularly sees themselves on the pages of a book. In this timely anthology, Glory Edim brings together original essays by some of our best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all--regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability--have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature. Contributors include Jesmyn Ward (Sing, Unburied, Sing), Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn), Gabourey Sidibe (This Is Just My Face), Morgan Jerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), Tayari Jones (An American Marriage), Rebecca Walker (Black, White and Jewish), and Barbara Smith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology). Whether it's learning about the complexities of femalehood from Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, finding a new type of love in The Color Purple, or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, the subjects of each essay remind us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club-turned-online community Well-Read Black Girl, in this anthology Glory Edim has created a space in which black women's writing and knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world and ourselves"--… (més)

A staggering list of books written by WOC. Some of the novels I have read, some have been on my TBR, and some I've never heard of before. Alternating between lists of books to read and authors talking about which authors/narratives sparkled their interest in reading, had me rushing to look up each title. ( )

This book, with a series of short stories, helped me understand why reading a diversity of authors matters. Race does matter and for me it was very interesting to have those perspectives explicitly stated in these black women's stories. I have read academic articles and books, but these incredible women writers brought home. They discuss how finding themselves represented in the pages of a book helped shaped their self-image and world view. ( )

For everyone who has ever questioned why representation matters so much in fiction, this book is for you. A series of essays by several Black women who discuss how finding themselves represented in the pages of a book helped shaped their self-image and world view. Plus it comes with a lot of recommendations so how can you beat that? ( )

Really lovely collection of essays about representation in fiction, great black writers, and just the experience of reading as a young black person - featuring a lot of great contemporary writers of color and a lot of really good book recommendations. I gave this away to a friend as soon as I finished it, which is one of the highest compliments I can give! ( )

Not sure what I expected, but this wasn’t it. Maybe it’s because I haven’t found my own book that I’ve connected to as deeply as the those included in the book.Not sure but, but this wasn’t for me. Maybe I’ll try again later🤷🏾‍♀️ ( )
