Take My Hand

By Dolen Perkins-Valdez
Narrated by: Lauren J. Daggett
Length: 10 hours 56 minutes

Take My Hand

Take My Hand by Dolen Perkins-Valdez is historical fiction that addresses a still very relevant topic -- women's reproductive rights, and it does so in a very personal way. Set in 1973 and 2016, the book is based on the true story of forced sterilizations performed by the US government primarily on poor women of color. I loved that the nuances of 1970's Alabama were well depicted --not just the racism and poverty that is well known but also the better educated and prosperous black community. The nature of the topic has a forceful emotional and psychological impact.”

Woman of Light

A Novel

By Kali Fajardo-Anstine
Narrated by: Melinna Bobadilla
Length: 10 hours 5 minutes

Woman of Light

Woman of Light is a beautifully written story of unity, adversity, and the struggles of the Lopez family in the 1920s and 1930s. Perfectly connecting the past and present up to a meeting point for the family. I 100% recommend this book!”

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow

A novel

By Gabrielle Zevin
Narrated by: Jennifer Kim & Julian Cihi
Length: 13 hours 51 minutes

If you enjoyed The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, then you’ll love Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow.

“I was seized and thoroughly absorbed by this amazing book, beautifully narrated in audiobook form. Sam and Sadie are two brilliant video gamers and creative designers whose lives revolve around games. The book follows their friendship and professional collaboration from early teen to young adult - through love and grief and disappointment and success. Many issues come up throughout the novel, such as the role of women in on-line gaming, gender identification, difficulties for mixed-race children, the immigrant experience, the place of art in society. But underlying is a wonderful and tender tale of companionship and love."”
