The Free People's Village by Sim Kern

Staff Pick

Set in an alternate 2020 after Al Gore won the 2000 election and war was waged on climate change rather than on terrorism, this incredible book follows a young white woman involved in a community effort to save Houston’s historically Black Eighth Ward from destruction by a new “clean” hyperway. Sound familiar? With fierce love and hope, Kern tackles systemic racism, environmentalism gone wrong, attempts at utopia, and queer friendship--this is a must-read for anyone trying to live through the catastrophic world we find ourselves in.
