February is Black History Month, a month in which I like to focus attention on reading black authors, black history, and black perspectives. Last year I offered the Passing Book Box (Nella Larsen) - an intriguing look at three different women of color living three different lives during the 1920s.

This year, I invite you to travel farther back in time - wayyyyy back to the 1800s. Spend a little time in the Carolinas with author Harriet Jacobs and her family, a woman with hopes and dreams not unlike yours who happened to be born and raised in the South prior to emancipation.

This is HER story.

Explore the first-hand experiences of a former slave from the unique perspective of a woman - from birth through womanhood.

What's Inside?

  • a brightly bound edition of Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl - a novel vetted by over a century of pretty literate people as well as our very own Monthly Book Club subscribers! 
  • a novel treasure - one carefully curated to remind the reader of Harriet Jacobs' heart-breaking, yet inspirational story (and so many untold stories like hers)
  • perks - As a book box buyer, you automatically have front-of-the-line access to the Monthly Book Club when it reopens to new subscribers since the number of spots is limited.

What's the buzz about this book box?

What you are about to experience is sort of a time capsule - bits and pieces of the life of one young girl on her road to womanhood. Some of it is sweet. Other parts are difficult to digest. All of it is worth the read because while we have not {thankfully} been called to walk the road she has trod, in reading about her journey, we can gain courage for the difficult roads that lie ahead of each of us.
