Inspired by @HelenMcClory asking men to recommend her one book they’ve enjoyed that’s written by a woman, I have a question for white Twitter:

📚 Can you recommend me one book you have read that’s written by a woman of colour? If so, what did you like about it? 📚

Getting all of these book recommendations, and reading about all the reasons people outside that demographic connect with writing by women of colour, has filled me with optimism - and given me lots to reserve at the library!

This thread is the most I have enjoyed Twitter in a very long time. Books are such incredible empathy conduits.
