Here at The Root we’ve always loved, praised, and centered Black literature in the broader conversation. Each week hosts Danielle Belton and Maiysha Kai sit down with an author we love to talk about their work, what inspires them, and what they hope to contribute to the culture at large. Guests so far include Nikole Hannah Jones, Brittney Cooper, Ijeoma Oluo, Morgan Jerkins, and Claudia Rankine.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays from It's Lit! This week we're bringing you a special episode in which Maiysha and Danielle discuss the page-turners they couldn't put down this year, the year's most giftable books, the classics they recommend and the books they predict will be future classics.
