NEW YORK (AP) — Books and authors mattered in 2021, sometimes more than the industry wanted.
A 22-year-old poet became a literary star. The enthusiasms of young people on TikTok helped revive Colleen Hoover's “It Ends With Us,” and other novels released years earlier.
NEW YORK (AP) — One of the year's most anticipated debut novels, Honorée Fanonne Jeffers' “The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois,” is now an Oprah Winfrey book club pick.
Published Tuesday, Jeffers' novel traces centuries of Black history through a family in the American South and its contemporary narrator, young Ailey Paul Garfield.
