Winner of this year's Michael L. Printz Award, Everything Sad Is Untrue: A True Story, by Daniel Nayeri, spins a tale of his Persian forebears and the chain of events that led to his mother fleeing to Oklahoma with him when he was small.

Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre, by Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrated by Floyd Cooper, is a beautiful picture book about a horrible event in American history, the day in 1921 when a mob burned and destroyed the thriving and prospering Black community in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Happy Reading!
