Book Corner: February is the perfect time to check out these award-winning works

One of the great perks of being a librarian is that you are surrounded by people who are as passionate about books as you are. I have found that books are a great way to connect with other people and that the shared experience of having read the same author or similar titles can help create lifelong friends. While taking a tour of the Croatian islands during my honeymoon, a fellow passenger and I bonded over our mutual love of Octavia Butler. The other passengers stared curiously at us as we talked a hundred miles a minute and gesticulated wildly because we could not contain our love for Butler and her award-winning books. Thinking back on that conversation, I considered some of the other great authors I look forward to reading throughout the year and especially during February to celebrate African American History Month.
