What's Your Favorite Book From A Black Author?

Let us know!

What up, what up? It's time for another cool challenge with your *fave Facebook group, Page Turners!


*If you're not in the group, pause what you're doing, rewind, join the group, and try again.

Our mission? Every month, Page Turners picks a theme, and you — yeah, you — 1) choose what you want to read and 2) recommend books for other people to read!


We know you're as hype about it as we are.

What's this month's theme? Books written by black authors — and we want to know what your favorites are!


Imagine this: your least favorite person says something insensitive on social media. Rather than waste your breath fighting them, you send them a book recommendation so they can teach themselves. Which book is that?

Maybe it's A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines for its look at society during segregation.

Alfred A. Knopf

Or you could be feeling Angie Thomas' The Hate U Give because it's a YA novel with a profound message.

Balzer and Bray

There’s no such thing as disliking Toni Morrison’s impactful storytelling in Beloved — where she focuses on the lives of Black Americans directly after slavery.

Alfred A. Knopf

Or maybe you're a fan of Paul Beatty's novel, The Sellout, which discusses progression vs. regression.


Whether your choice is a fiction, biography, classic, or something else entirely — we wanna know.


Tell us your faves and why you loved them in the Dropbox for a chance to be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post! Make sure to give us plenty of details, and don't forget to join the Page Turners Facebook group to get in on the discussion.
