National Book Award? REVOLUTION by Deborah Wiles. Don't miss it.

Revolution (The Sixties Trilogy) - Deborah Wiles

I am currently reading this book with my ears AND by hard copy. This is a book where you want BOTH. I am so grateful that Karin Perry put both versions in my hands last week. This is about Summer 1964 in Mississippi. It is an important book for readers of all ages. The audio allows you to hear the text of publications, speeches, songs, etc. aloud, While the print version lets you see them on paper. I cannot think of another book I've read this year that is more deserving for its category. Get it. Hear it. Read it. You won't be sorry, especially if you remember 1964. I'll post again when I finish. I am so impressed by this book that I cannot wait to talk about it until then.
