Combining the haunting power of Toni Morrison’s Beloved with the evocative atmosphere of Phillippa Gregory’s A Respectable Trade, Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa’s groundbreaking novel illuminates a little discussed aspect of history–the Puerto Rican Atlantic Slave Trade–witnessed through the experiences of Pola, an African captive used as a breeder to bear more slaves.
Maurice Broaddus’s Sweep of Stars is the first in a trilogy that explores the struggles of an empire.

(original earth) to Titan – as it faces an escalating series of threats.

The James Beard award-winning author of the acclaimed The Cooking Gene explores the cultural crossroads of Jewish and African diaspora cuisine and issues of memory, identity, and food.
