If she’s not busy teaching, planning author events, writing for Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz or penning her latest romantic tale, bestselling author Donna Hill (Rhythms, Getting Hers) can probably be found in her Bedford-Stuyvesant home reading books featuring strong female characters.
Here are some of the favorites she recommends:
Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope by Nikki Grimes
Brothers of the Knight by Debbie Allen
Coming on Home Soon by Jacqueline Woodson
Decision Time by Earl Sewell
The Promise by Chandra Sparks Taylor
Glorious by Bernice McFadden
A Happy Marriage by Rafael Yglesias
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
A Mercy by Toni Morrison
Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
Be sure you visit your local Library to check out these recommendations, or even one of Ms. Hill’s published works.
