The Gilded Ones
WATCH: 12 years of failure, the journey of a Black woman to be seen in publishing
National Poetry Month is coming in April! To prepare, we have put together this resource for you and your readers. For older readers, we have combined discussion guides for Chlorine Sky by Mahoganey L. Browne and Home Is Not a Country by Safia Elhillo. These gorgeous coming-of-age books are both novels-in-verse. For younger readers, we provide several recommendations for more poetry, novels-in-verse, and books featuring elements of poetry.

The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963 By Christopher Paul Curtis
Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honoree about an unforgettable family on a road-trip during one of the most important times in the civil rights movement. This special edition makes a perfect gift and includes bonus content.
When the Watson family—ten-year-old Kenny, Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, and brother Byron—sets out on a trip south to visit Grandma in Birmingham, Alabama, they don’t realize that they’re heading toward one of the darkest moments in America’s history. The Watsons’ journey reminds us that even in the hardest times, laughter and family can help us get through anything.
