Nearly one hundred years earlier, a misguided violent encounter propels seventeen-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what's right the night Tulsa burns.
When it comes to Dreamland Burning, I have a lot of high hopes! I grew in a town not far from the Oklahoma border, but that wasn't how I learned about the Tulsa Race Riots. In fact the only reason was because of a museum I visited with my parents on vacation. Since then I've only found a few book about the Riots. My fingers are crossed it lives up to my expectation, because it sounds really good!
How was everyone's Holidays??
