      Native Son by Richard Wright Read this book in African American Literature. Amazing book about race.

    • O'Fallon Public Library

      Powerful story about racial divisions in America. Native Son by Richard Wright. Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail. It could have been for assault or petty larceny; by chance, it was for murder and rape. Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic. Richard Wright's novel is just as powerful today as when it was written.

    "Writer and reader... who gives, who receives? Both and both. And, this is why it is always necessary to leave open spaces in a piece of work, to trust the reader to get it, to not tell everything... the empty spaces are the handholds, footholds, by which the reader climbs into the work, inserting him or herself." - Crescent Dragonwagon
