The Reading Divas Are Reading
Because we know Real Divas Read!
Sharing information from Troy Johnson co-founder of the Power List:
Here is a direct link to the press release announcing the Summer Power List: http://aalbc.it/40powerbooks If you’d be kind enough to share this information; email it to others; tell folks about it; post the link on your website, blog, or social media; or write a comment in the comments section; I’m sure readers would benefit from the information and authors would appreciate the support. Your 30 second investment of time will absolutely make a difference. Mainstream media will not share the depth and breadth of our stories—we must do it.
Also, the next Power List (fall 2015) will include, for the first time, a children’s list. I’m excited about this, as there is a lot of unsatisfied demand for information about quality children’s books.
Co-Founder, Power List
To this list please add the following new fall releases:
The Coming - Daniel Black, Grant Park - Leonard Pitts,Jr. and Lawful Deception - Pamela Samuels Young.
