In honor of Black History Month, we’ve compiled a list of titles of interest from our publishers:

Heav'nly Tidings From the Afric Muse: The Grace and Genius of Phillis Wheatley by Richard Kigel

America had a Founding Mother, too—her name was Phillis Wheatley. This new comprehensive and thrilling biography details the life and work of the slave who became what the author calls “the Poet Laureate of the American Revolution.” Includes excerpts of all her poems, new details on her writing and her meetings with George Washington, and more. Her name should be as well-known as Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King for the story of African-American history.

Paragon House

Hemingway, Three Angels, and Me by Jerome Mark Antil

"The Jim Crow South is the setting for this compelling coming-of-age story filled with compassion and understanding. Black-and-white pictures from Antil's family collection illustrate the story, and QR codes provide interactive audio and video effects, using modern technology to introduce younger audiences to the sights and sounds of the 1950s. The Pompey Hollow books are suited both to middle readers and to those nostalgic for a time ripe with family farms and small towns, rarer now than then. Those who enjoy novels with small-town settings and wholesome young protagonists will enjoy this novel as well." - 5-Star Review, Foreword Magazine
