The features author for Day 27 in my Black Authors I LOVE! series is Ann Petry. To be honest I was unfamiliar with this author until last year when I read an article about her book “The Street” about a single mother raising a son in Harlem and the social injustices they faced. Let me just say I was sleeping in this author, but was happy to awaken. Mrs. Petry was the first black female novelist to sell over a million copies of her book.(The Street) Do yourself a favor if you haven’t read this one, run out now or download it to you device. You won’t be sorry.
