Elizabeth Acevedo’s third work of fiction, Clap When You Land, is the Book Club by A pick for the month of July, and I’m so excited to dig deeper into Acevedo’s work through resources and reviews below, as well as discussion with fellow readers at @bookmarkedbya. Let’s dig in!
Please see the below reviews by Dominican, Latinx, and Black readers and interviews with the author to get a more well-rounded understanding of Clap When You Land. Having more than one source of truth is so important as we form opinions and speak on topics that may not be as well-known to us.
