Welcome back to a new season of Booked for Lunch. This September we will be discussing Take My Hand by Dolen Perkins-Valdez.

Inspired by true events that rocked the nation, a searing and compassionate new novel about a Black nurse in post-segregation Alabama who blows the whistle on a terrible injustice done to her patients. Brimming with hope, Take My Hand is a stirring exploration of accountability and redemption.
