The definitive political biography of Rosa Parks examines her six decades of activism, challenging perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the Civil Rights Movement.

Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single act, birthed the modern Civil Rights Movement, Theoharis provides a revealing window into Parks' politics and years of activism. She shows listeners how this civil rights movement radical sought - for more than a half a century - to expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools, public services, and criminal justice.

For fantasy fans who want a more historical tale, or historical fiction buffs who want something a little more fantastical this genre-bending book is the perfect choice! It follows Lee Westfall, a young woman living in 19th century Georgia who has a secret: she is a gold diviner. When tragedy strikes her family, her only option for escape and opportunity seems to be joining a wagon trail west to strike it rich in California’s gold rush. But the journey is more harrowing than she can imagine… she must disguise herself as a boy and face all manner of tribulations on the trail. This book is incredibly engrossing… not only is the story suspenseful, but the characters and fantastical elements are portrayed in such an intimate way it feels almost like reading real history. - Linnea
