The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill

This was our top selling fiction book of 2009 due to being both the One Book One Community choice and the CBC's Canada Reads pick. Personally it's one of my top 10 favorite books of all time. And Lawrence Hill is one of the kindest gentleman that I have been lucky to meet. Harper Collins released an illustrated version of the book just before Christmas. It's gorgeus with an amazing collection of historical documents, paintings and more from that time period. Check out this video for more on the new release:
