Congratulations Derrick Barnes & Gordon C. James!

WINNER! 2018 KIRKUS PRIZE

KIRKUS REVIEW

Safe to say, there’s nothing like the feeling of the fresh cut. You feel so extra visible with a fresh new cut, and this book built from that experience translates it in a way never before brought to the children’s bookshelf. Basquiat-inspired king insignias and a bit of Kehinde Wiley flair shape portraits of all the various ways men (and women too!) come into the black barbershop to restore their cool, leaving the chair with high self-esteem, self-pride, and confidence—if only for as long as their hairlines remain crisp. It’s sacred. The all-important line and the diverse styles take center stage here.

 

One of the best reads for young black boys in years, it should be in every library, media center, and, yes, barbershop. (Picture book. 5-12)

Congratulations to Rebecca Solnit
Congratulations to Rebecca Solnit

WINNER! 2018 KIRKUS PRIZE

Solnit is careful with her words (she always is) but never so much that she mutes the infuriated spirit that drives these essay.

 

For those heartsick at Trumpism, essayist and Harper’s contributing editor Solnit (The Mother of All Questions, 2017, etc.) offers context and support. Optimism? You’re on your own. Read full book review

Bound by Cultural Expectations…
Two Zapatista women, bound by cultural expectations, struggle to express the truth of their lives in the highlands of Chiapas.

When a woman rises, a community is nourished. In the Maya township of Chenalhó in Chiapas, Veronica, a teenage girl, is recovering from a disastrous early marriage. Spurred on by a community program of women telling their stories, she asks her mother Magdalena to record the story of her growing up and that of her best friend, Lucia.
