February Obsessions

Hello all and Happy February!

In honor of the month that celebrates Black History and Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing fun, themed events happening around DC, books I’ve read by authors of color, and great lineup of movies and TV shows airing for the next few weeks!

Even though it’s the shortest month of the year, I often find that February post-Valentine’s Day just drags on and on. By the time March rolls around, I just want it to be spring! Hopefully these books, articles, movies, TV shows, and activities provide you with enough fun and inspiration to get your through this final stretch of winter. Enjoy!

  • Pet – a fascinating take on a supposedly utopian society that has gotten rid of evil, but what happens when people forget about the monsters hidden in plain sight? This YA book tackles tough issues, AND features a trans girl of color as the protagonist!
