Ep 243: Predicting the next great American classic

Description

Charlandra Jenkins is a Florida reader on the hunt for stories that reflect her life, love, grief, and humanity back to her. For Charlandra, new book releases and recent bestsellers by Black authors are a joy, but she’s also yearning for some history… backlist titles by women of color that say “hey! we’ve always been here, we’ve always existed”. Today, Anne recommend 3 backlist titles suited to Charlandra’s taste for complex, fully-realized female characters finding their way through life, and finding themselves along the way. They discuss Charlandra’s enduring love for Zora Neale Hurston, novels that carry the reader through grief... and you’ll definitely want to hear about the book Charlandra expects will become a classic of our time. Click over to the podcast website for a list of books mentioned in this episode: http://whatshouldireadnextpodcast.com/243Follow Charlandra's reading adventures on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/rantiesnplantiesThanks to today's sponsors:The Great Courses Plus makes it easy to learn new information or skills with courses taught by the world’s best professors and experts.
