So you know that book discussion group thingie we started a couple months ago? It got off to a rollicking start with Junot Diaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and then rapidly flamed out with Edwidge Danticat’s Brother I’m Dying.
We weren’t alone in noticing the problem. belleisa, a regular reader, volunteered to be our designated books blogger, a brilliant idea we’re kicking ourselves for not having thought of first. She’s a writer and aspiring journalist* a bibliophile (and Joss Whedon fan) from BK.** She’ll be writing about classics and contemporary black lit, and helping us get out literary ducks in a row over here at PB.
We’re happy to have her aboard here at PB. Show her some love, y’all.
*Don’t do it, sis!
** How small is this city? Turns out she and I go to the same gym. Wild.
