If reading poetry is on your list of things to do (it should be!) I recommend "Citizen: An American Lyric." Rankine deftly explores the burdens of racism through poetry, prose and art. Focusing her attention on the insidious racism that surrounds us, she asks us to consider what it means to be a "citizen." A beautiful and searing cultural critique that I could not put down.

Be prepared for some feelings- this coming of age, first love story is especially poignant. Woodson beautifully and masterfully captures the innocence and wisdom of youth. Inspired to write a modern day Romeo & Juliet, Woodson's 20th anniversary edition is as relevant today as it was in 1998.

A Great American Novel and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1972! It follows the Ward family from the late 1800s to San Francisco in the 1960s, as they make their life in the American West. Stegner writes intimately about history, managing to convey both the harsh realities of frontier life with the romanticism that this period holds for many. A compelling and deep read.
