Free Audio Friday: Quicksand

Quicksand_0112

 

February is Black History Month, and for Free Audio Fridays this month Elizabeth will be featuring titles by African-American writers. The first title is Quicksand by Nella Larsen, which focuses on the struggles of Helga Crane, a mixed-race woman in the late 1920s whose journey of self-exploration takes her from the deep South to Chicago to New York to Copenhagen. You can download Elizabeth’s solo recording free from LibriVox – and if you like it, be sure to check out her recording of Passing, also by Larsen. Happy listening!
