Sway the Vote — “Someone Knows My Name”

Janis Russell, librarian at the North Port Library, has some comments to persuade you that Someone Knows My Name should be the next One Book.

I read this book several years ago, yet remember it as if I read it yesterday.  That is how affecting is the protagonist’s various stories.  You REALLY learn how it would feel to be rounded up as a captive &  marched to your enslavement.  Yet the main character has the character to forgive all, becoming who she was meant to be all along.

To further convince you, here is a link to the Reading Group Guide and the Teacher’s Guide.

And to make sure you have all the info you need, here is Lawrence Hill’s Convocation Address at Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario in London.
