More on The Great Migration

Tomorrow night is the big event! I am so looking forward to discussing Isabel Wilkerson's The Warmth of Other Suns with everyone. Although Wilkerson's book has been acclaimed as the most comprehensive look yet at the Great Migration, hers is far from the only book on the subject. I've put together a list of other works on the Great Migration, including some for children. All of these are available at the Evanston Public Library. Interestingly, few of the major works (by adults) on the topic were written by African American authors.

Enjoy! And I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night!
