I am so excited to present Sapphire for today’s Black Author I LOVE! I discovered her work many years ago when I ran across a treasure called PUSH. Many of you may be familiar with the film version named Precious that earned comedian Mo’Nique an Oscar and introduced us to the wonderful Gabourey Sidibe. PUSH is her first novel, but this author is best known for her poetry. If you have only seen the movie, please read this book. It makes the experience so much better.
