Student Success adjunct selected for writing Best Teen Book

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Wednesday December 3, 2014

Denise Lewis Patrick’s book, A Matter of Soul, has been selected as one of the Best Teen Books of 2014 by Kirkus Review. Kirkus Reviews is a leading book review journal. Patrick is an adjunct Instructor of Fundamentals of Writing and Critical Thinking for the Division of Student Success.

About A Matter of Souls (Carolrhoda Books, 2014), the Kirkus Review writes,

Eight short stories with long memory cut to the quick—all the more as they could be true. Patrick’s tales from the distant and not-so-distant past shed fresh light on interracial and intraracial conflicts that shape and often distort the realities of African-Americans. The youthful characters possess passion and purpose, even if they remain misguided or too proud to live safely within their historically situated habitats….Shocking, informative and powerful, this volume offers spectacular literary snapshots of black history and culture.
