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: 

For Kids:

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


For Adults:

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.
