In 2011 I wrote about a friend who was working on the first book length biography of Regina Anderson Andrews. I am pleased to announce Regina Anderson Andrews: Harlem Renaissance Librarian by Dr. Ethelene Whitmire has just been published by University of Illinois Press.
Ms. Andrews was a trailblazer, an activist, playwright and librarian. She started at the famous 135th Street Branch of the New York Public Library (NYPL). She eventually worked at other branches and became the first African American branch manager in NYPL history.
To celebrate its publication, I’m giving away one free copy. If interested, just leave a comment by Tuesday, May 27, 2014. I will announce the recipient on Wednesday, May 28th. Cheers!
