Read one of the 100 notable books of 2020!

By Allison Kooser

Last month, we read Kintu, the multi-generational narrative by Ugandan author Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi. We loved learning more about Ugandan history through the compelling stories of the Kintu clan.

This month, we are traveling west in Africa to Liberia to read one of The New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2020.

Join us as we read The Dragons, The Giant, The Women by Wayétu Moore.

Through her engrossing memoir, Moore tells her story of escaping the First Liberian Civil War and building a life in the United States. As a young child, Moore was forced to flee her home on foot with her family, embarking on a difficult journey to peace and safety.

The National Book Review called The Dragons, The Giant, The Women "riveting and beautifully written," and Publishers Weekly said "readers will be both enraptured and heartbroken by Moore's intimate yet epic story of love for family and home."

Let's end the year together with this beautiful memoir.

Can't wait to read with you!
