***Goin' Someplace Special

An Anne Schwartz Book. Atheneum Books for Young Readers.

Based on her own experiences as a young girl, Patricia McKissack writes
about ‘Tricia Ann’s trip on her own to “Someplace Special.” She has
to ride in the back of the bus, can’t sit on the park bench, and passes
stores with signs “For Whites Only.” But the Someplace Special--the
Public Library--is Free for All. A beautiful book with a good message.
