We’re trying something new with The Stacks Book Club for March. We’re reading our very first novel in verse. Our selection is Every Body Looking by Candice Iloh.
Every Body Looking is a Young Adult novel in verse about Ada. This one is a true coming of age story where we follow Ada through her childhood and into your freshmen year at an HBCU. We get to see the events that have developed her into the young woman she is, and the ways she explores the freedom of being able to decide for her self. This book is ultimately about the body, questioning, and empowerment.This debut novel was a finalist for The National Book Award in 2020.
We will be discussing Every Body Looking on Wednesday, March 31st. You can find out who our guest will be by listening to the podcast on March 3rd. If you’d like even more discussion around the book consider joining The Stacks Pack on Patreon and participating in The Stacks’ monthly virtual book club.
