Celebrating Black Women Authors!


 
The perseverance and talent that Maya Angelou, Octavia Butler, Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and many other Black women authors had helped pave the way for current authors to breathe life into their books’ characters, such as “The girl with the louding voice,” by Abi Dare, and “White teeth : a novel,” by Zadi Smith.As Toni Morison said so wonderfully, “If you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else.” Come to the Learning Commons and Library to browse a few works of these inspiring authors or visit our displays virtually at go.hawaii.edu/Pnr!

The Mysteries of Edgar Allan Poe

Stop by the Learning Commons & Library to see our display of Edgar Allan Poe and check out some of his wonderfully, frightful tales!

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American writer, poet, and a critic of other writers when he worked at the Southern Literary Messenger in Richmond, Virginia.  He was considered the ‘Tomahawk Man” due to his vicious reviews of his contemporaries. However, he was a talented poet and prolific writer completing works such as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” “The Black Cat,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and one of his best known works, “The Raven.”

You can also view this display virtually at go.hawaii.edu/Pnr.
