The challenge will run from January 1 - December 31, 2011. On her site she has a list of authors and titles to chose from, but they are merely suggestions. The only requirement is that they are black authors depicting an offbeat black experience.
The levels are:
I - 2 books
II - 3 books
III - 4 books
IV - more than 5 books.
I will be participating in level 2 and the books I chose to read from her list are:
Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin
32 Candles by Ernessa I. Carter
Substitute Me by Lori Tharps
