Notice anything different inside NoveList this month? That's right! To celebrate Black History Month, NoveList is dedicating our Featured Read-alikes section to books by and/or about African Americans.
On the kids' side, we chose to highlight books by African American authors and illustrators -- everything from classics like Monster and Freight Train to newer acclaimed titles like Last Stop on Market Street. For adults, we picked popular fiction by African American authors and compelling nonfiction about African American history and culture.
As always, we're hoping to inspire you and your customers to add a few more irresistible books to your TBR pile. Keep an eye on our Featured Read-alikes all month long for more remarkable reading!
Here are two power searches to get you started:

GX "African American fiction" AND GX "Modern classics" AND ND "Book" AND RL 1
Picture books by African American authors and Illustrators:
