Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Capstone Connect.

My selection is Freedom Walkers: the story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott written by Russell Freedman.

The extraordinary Russell Freedman brings his award-winning talent to another pivotal moment in American history in a book that brings the Bus Boycott into perspective for modern young readers.  He draws on  contemporary accounts and scholarly papers to inform his writing and create a work that is both accurate and personal.   As always, the photographs bring another layer of depth to the thoughtful text.
