Mr B’s Books to Remember in a Year to Forget: Race
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we always have more to learn, and it is up to every single one of us to help create change. These are just some of the 2020 releases about race, the Black Lives Matter movement, and by and about BIPOC people, that need to be seen.
Each year we produce our Christmas catalogue which features 101 of our favourite books of the year and the festive season (you can read it right here – https://mrbsemporium.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Christmas-Catto-2020.pdf). But that’s ONLY 101 books, and there are so many more to talk about and in 2020 they’re so tricky to discover. That’s why we’ve decided to create the first annual Mr B’s “Books of the Year” Lists which in 2020 we’re calling “Books to Remember in a Year to Forget“. In all, there will be a staggering 70 “half-dozens” of books across all the genres and subjects we get asked for most and that we read the most. We’ve limited our picks to books published in 2020 – either in hardback or paperback form. Beyond that it’s just a free-wheeling subjective gallop through what we consider to be some of 2020’s publishing highlights.
