I'm so grateful for the recognition Take My Hand is receiving. It has been awarded the 2023 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work-Fiction, the 2023 Prize for Fiction from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association, and most recently the Silver Gavel Award from the American Bar Association. Of course, it feels good for the work to be recognized, but this story is so dear to me. We are being seen! That's especially gratifying.
The paperback is now out in stores everywhere. It's a pretty edition with a Reader's Guide that you won't find in the hardcover.
If you've already read it, please spread the word to a friend!
Oh, and my bookclub will launch soon. Sign up for the newsletter and stay tuned!
Thank you again and more soon,
