Suggested readings by Kenneth and Sharon Holley It’s summertime…..It’s reading time!
If you have been waiting since fall, winter and spring to relax with good reading, now is your time. Take a book to the park, to the waterfront, on your front or back porch and immerse yourself in the words and images painted by a number of African American writers. Make your choice…biography, mystery, comedy, politics, history, romance…we have a book for you!
