She’s Smiling - The Book Must Be Good

Southside Library has a special secret that can spice up your reading. If you love African American fiction and non-fiction, then you should subscribe to our special email newsletter with reading recommendations just for you.

Southside staffer Helene Robinson shares her extensive knowledge of what readers want to see, by writing a monthly NextReads newsletter with recommendations of new titles you don’t want to miss. She will also bring your attention to older classic titles that are definitely worth a second look. This month, subscribers read reviews for Lorene Cary’s If Sons, Then Heirs, Vanessa Davis Griggs’s Redeeming Waters, and Common’s memoir, One Day It’ll All Make Sense. You’ll also find links to helpful and exciting resources on the Web for African American readers, and notice of upcoming events of interest at the library.

What is NextReads? One of Forsyth County Public Library’s reader recommendation services. We send out monthly or quarterly newsletters to subscribers who are interested in any number of topics. Do you read biography? Want to know what’s new in the library for DIYers? Romance, Christian Fiction, Armchair Travel, Sports and many more subjects are available. And all newsletters are edited right here by librarians at Forsyth County Public Library.

Interested? All you need is an email address. Visit our NextReads page at the library’s website, and check off the box for “African American Literature”—and any other newsletters you’d like to begin receiving. Enter your name and email address and expect to find your newsletter(s) in your email inbox soon. Or ask your library staff the next time you visit one of our branches. All recommended titles are available at Forsyth County Public Library.
