Corretta Scott King – Virginia Hamilton Award-winning author Mildred D. Taylor concludes her Logan family series with this moving audiobook. AudioFile’s Robin Whitten and host Jo Reed talk about the subtle yet emotive performance by Allyson Johnson. She welcomes listeners with her warm narration of a story centered around Cassie Logan, whom listeners first met as an 8-year-old in Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (1976). Now Cassie is grown, and she’s moving from Mississippi north, and then to California, discovering that prejudice and racism exist even all the way across the country. The drama of the plot and the depth of the characterizations ensure that this audiobook is unforgettable.
