What should Books on Tap read in January?
The three choices are:
"Red at the Bone" by Jacqueline Woodson
As it explores sexual desire and identity, ambition, gentrification, education, class and status, and the life-altering facts of parenthood, "Red at the Bone" most strikingly looks at the ways in which young people must so often make long-lasting decisions about their lives--even before they have begun to figure out who they are and what they want to be.
"How We Fight for Our Lives" by Saeed Jones
From award-winning poet Saeed Jones, "How We Fight for Our Lives" is a stunning coming-of-age memoir written at the crossroads of sex, race, and power. “People don't just happen,” writes Saeed Jones. “We sacrifice former versions of ourselves. We sacrifice the people who dared to raise us."
"The Secrets We Kept" by Lara Prescott
At the height of the Cold War, two secretaries are pulled out of the typing pool at the CIA and given the assignment of a lifetime. Their mission: to smuggle Doctor Zhivago out of the USSR, where no one dare publish it, and help Pasternak's magnum opus make its way into print around the world. "The Secrets We Kept" captures a watershed moment in the history of literature--told with soaring emotional intensity and captivating historical detail.
