2019 NAACP Image Award Winners

The 2019 NAACP Image Award winners have been announced, and we’d like to wish a huge congratulations to FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED POLITICS by Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore with Veronica Chambers on winning the Outstanding Literary Work–Nonfiction category.

FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED POLITICS is filled with personal stories that bring to life heroic figures we all know and introduce us to some of those who’ve worked behind the scenes but are still hidden. Whatever their perch, the Colored Girls are always focused on the larger goal of “hurrying history” so that every American–regardless of race, gender or religious background–can have a seat at the table. This is their story.

THE PLEA
“Cavanagh’s fast-paced, action-packed legal thriller is bound to grip John Grisham and Michael Connelly fans with its unexpected turns.” Library Journal, starred review

“Criminally entertaining…Perfect for anyone who likes a locked-room mystery wrapped inside a legal thriller on steroids.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

And don’t miss the next book in the series THIRTEEN, coming out next year–This time, the killer isn’t on trial. He’s on the jury.
