I’ve been holding in this announcement for over a month, and I’m so excited to finally tell you all that I’m having a book giveaway. On behalf of my first full year of my blog, The Rina Collective, I want to give ONE lucky person a bundle of three books that exemplifies strong women, self care, and three journeys that are sure to inspire and intrigue you.
WHY DID I CHOOSE THESE BOOKS?
Pulitzer Prize Author Alice Walker’s Her Blue Body Everything We Know: Earthling Poems 1965 – 1990 is a collection of poems that I’m currently studying for myself as a poet. Alice Walker is my favorite author, and she inspires me wholeheartedly. I hope the winner finds this book very useful for their own writing journey.
An American Marriage by New York Times Bestselling Author Tayari Jones tells the story of a couple who runs into challenges when the husband is convicted and jailed for a crime he did not commit, and when he returns home five years later, the fight to save a marriage begins. I watched Tayari Jones speak about this book back in September 2017 at the Well-Read Black Girl Festival, and her advice to young writers regarding submissions, as well as speaking about her journey as A writer, inspired me as well. Instead of buying this book for myself, I want to give it away to someone else first.
The Mother of Black Hollywood: A Memoir by Award-Winning Actress Jenifer Lewis is another book that I don’t own yet, but will definitely plan to read! The legendary actress has lived such a life that we all should learn from, especially regarding mental health. As a woman with depression, I adore fellow writers who discuss their struggles and pains, and talk about how they overcome those hard times. Jenifer Lewis is amazing, and I’m so excited to be giving this book away.
