WHILE WHITE MEN SLEEP
By Alderin Ordell
Alderin Ordell’s WHILE WHITE MEN SLEEP is a smart, social novel about race in America. In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s 2016 election, young Black woman Mandy and her best friend Janet, living in Portland, are galvanized into action. As their acts of protest against white supremacy are taken up all over the country, there is a national reckoning. An imaginative dystopian take on systemic racism and militarization, with compelling and passionate characters.
