** NO need for seconding or voting at this point. Once the nominations are in I'll create a poll for voting.

** Top two vote getters will be our books for Oct.

** Authors may not nominate their own books.

Marialyce I nominate Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill. It is a story about a young girl kidnapped from Africa and sold into slavery. It carries her struggles through being a slave, the Revolutionary War, and her further struggles to become a person recognized as a human being. The book spans sixty years.

Regine I nominate The Book of Night Women by Marlon James. It also deals with slavery.

Adrienne (kalanna) | 175 comments Hey Marialyce and everyone, Someone Knows My Name was published in Canada as The Book of Negroes. Not sure why the title change, but I just picked up that book! In 2009, it won a national yearly radio contest we have called Canada Reads. Super excited that that book got nominated!
