February is coming to a close, and that means the end of Black History Month.  However, we believe in supporting authors of color every month of the year!  If you've been by the store, you've seen our center table filled with books by Black writers: James Baldwin, Roxane Gay, Jacqueline Woodson, Alice Walker, and Richard Wright.  We'll recommend those books all year long; but we'd like to highlight some 2015 books by writers of color, too.  After all, who isn't excited about the new Toni Morrison?? Add these books to your to-read list, and find more at WeNeedDiverseBooks.org.
