Our February Guest Editor and highly-buzzed-about author, Anissa Gray, is by no surprise, a reading fanatic. When we asked her to choose some of her favorite books, she said it was hard to narrow her favorites down! She chose a classic she has always loved and a few new ones she is obsessed with. This is what Anissa Gray reads.

Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

“This was one of the first serious novels I discovered in high school and the very first novel I read by a black writer. It showed me all that was possible.”


Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

“The sheer audacity of the storytelling is something to behold, with its many interlocking stories, each set in a different place and time, and told in distinctly different voices. The book is deeply enjoyable and quite unlike anything I’ve ever read.”


The Round House by Louise Erdrich

The Round House is an incredible family story that also lays out the troubled history of the U.S. justice system among Native Americans. Not only did this book move me, it educated me.”
