Diane McKinney-Whetstone recommends
The Bookshop of Yesterdays (2018)
Amy Meyerson
"Captivates with its emotional honesty, fully realized characters, and precision of detail... Meyerson is a writer to watch."
Africaville (2019)
Jeffrey Colvin
"Africaville feels epic in scope. Jeffry Colvin's gift for storytelling is on full display in this remarkable debut. From his fresh depictions of a Nova Scotia Black community, to his powerful portrayal of the trials and triumphs of three generations of the Sebolt family, to his authentically rendered landscapes of racial conflict, both inter and intra, Colvin has crafted an immersive read."
