One Book, One District is a community read project hosted by the Woodland Hills School District. This year’s pick is Friday Black by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah. RSVP here!
Friday Black is a piercingly raw story collection; a treacherously surreal, and, at times, heartbreakingly satirical look at what it’s like to be young and black in America. In Friday Black, Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah’s writing will grab you, haunt you, enrage and invigorate you. By placing ordinary characters in extraordinary situations, Adjei-Brenyah reveals the violence, injustice, and painful absurdities of life in this country.
Have you received your copy of Friday Black? FREE copies are available at the Woodland Hills High School main office or at one of our community partners: Braddock Carnegie Library, C.C. Mellor Memorial Library (and their Forest Hills location), or Carnegie Free Library of Swissvale. All copies are free and yours to keep!
