Books & Beats: July 9, 2016
Betsy Burton says, “Yaa Gyasi’s debut novel Homegoing (Knopf) was a publishing sensation before it even came out last month, vied for by ten publishers … and the recipient of rave reviews.” Following two sisters and their descendants, the book charts black history in West Africa and the U.S.
Then, Austen Diamond thinks it’s high time we all escape the hot weather and head into the mountains for a few outdoor concerts.
