Last week we had a wonderful #blacklitchat discussion with Bernice McFadden, author of Gathering of Waters (and more novels – see below).

Gathering of Waters, her latest book, imagines the spiritual and human backstory to the lynching of Emmett Till in Money, Mississippi. It is a rich story and I was thoroughly engaged by the characters whose lives intersect, collide and lead to that infamous murder.

If you missed the chat, please check out the Chirpstory (a type of transcript for Twitter) here.

Gathering of Waters is published by Akashic Books and they also are re-releasing Bernice McFadden’s The Warmest December this year. So if you haven’t read her work, you have plenty to dive into this year.
