Bernice McFadden is celebrating the release of her newest novel, Glorious, with a big book blogger contest for blogs with 50 followers or more! Her book is set "against the backdrops of the Jim Crow South, the Harlem Renaissance, and the civil rights era," and it "follows the life of Easter Venetta Bartlett, a fictional Harlem Renaissance writer whose tumultuous path to success, ruin, and revival offers a candid portrait of the American experience in all its beauty and cruelty." I've honestly been looking forward to reading this book, so I was really excited just to be able to get involved.
