The Sunday Salon: A Month of Black History Picture Books


Welcome! I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. What is the Sunday Salon? The Sunday Salon is a place to link up and share what we have been doing during the week plus it's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

I spent one day reading and then listening to the birdsongs of birds of the US. Each bird mentioned has a QR code that takes the reader to the birdsong of the bird. What an excellent book! 

What I Read Last Week:

Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum

What I'm Reading Now:

The Real Wizard of Oz: The Life and Times of L. Frank Baum by Rebecca Loncraine (Bio)

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens (Classic)

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman (Book Club)

Counting Descent by Clint Smith (Poetry)

Thank you, Bonnie of Bonnie's Books, whose post last week reminded me of how much I enjoyed reading picture books in 2021 to celebrate Black History Month. Above is my calendar for 2021. I've decided to start a picture book reading celebration for 2024.

Here are the powerful picture books I've read so far for 2024 Black History Month. I hope you will check some of these out and share them with others.

Good Thing #1:
I counted sixteen one day.

Good Thing #2:
My writing friends and I ate breakfast
before our writing session
at the beautiful Galvez Hotel in Galveston.

Good Thing #3:
My husband went to Tucson this week for the rock and gem shows there,
and I indulged in some heavy-duty movie watching.
