The Other Room

This is a reprint of the prize-winning novel about a young woman who unknowingly signs up to teach classes at an all-black college in New Orleans in 1920. It is one of the best--and earliest--views of breaking the color line as well as a touching love story of a man and woman of different races. The new introduction by Hedden scholar and biographer P. V. LeForge brings the novel into historical context and gives a brief sketch of this wonderful, but heretofore forgotten writer. Price: $14.95 trade paperback.
