The wc living library

There are so many phenomenal BIPOC authors and writers that are never studied in colleges around the nation. This is a labor of love as a way to promote and create a space for living voices of color that deserve to be shared and appreciated. By learning and reading living authors, students will be able to see themselves represented in the works of living writers; but they'll also see what is possible through the art of writing. Each of these books is hand-picked because of their ability to engage, inspire, and excite the reader. Categories are: Poetry, Nonfict, Fiction, YA, Biography, Romance, History/Academic, and more.
