Reviewers have pulled out some of the more interesting books to highlight this year. From the Story behind the Story on a poetic exploration of a more famous slave revolt, the Amistad mutiny (Ardency: A Chronicle of the Amistad Rebels, by Kevin Young) to the 400-year history of Harlem, biographies of Ethel Waters and Ice-T, and much more.

If you are looking for something new to read this month, we encourage you to check the booklists. Since Booklist is a subscription online journal, many of the reviews will not be available for free but the booklists are available.
