All Boy Aren't Blue
George M. Johnson
In this groundbreaking and bestselling series of personal essays, prominent journalist and LGBTQIA+ activist George M. Johnson weaves together the trials and triumphs faced by Black queer boys.
A stunning graphic novel about navigating friendships, first crushes, and the path to self-discovery and acceptance, from award-winning author and artist Mike Curato.
The Bluest Eye
From the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner—a powerful examination of our obsession with beauty and conformity that asks questions about race, class, and gender with characteristic subtlety and grace.
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries.
