Take My Hand

By Dolen Perkins-Valdez
Narrated by: Lauren J. Daggett
Length: 10 hours 56 minutes

Take My Hand

“This novel about sexual sterilization of poor, Black, women in the American South in the early 1970s raises important and timely questions about reproductive choice and explores intersections of class, race and gender. The narrator conveys the heartfelt emotion behind the story beautifully. The characters were well-developed and complex, and the author's note at the end - not to be missed - highlighted the significant research that went in to this book. This empathetic novel is especially relevant for Saskatchewan readers who may recall that Health officials in this province apologized in 2017 to Indigenous women who experienced coercion to undergo tubal ligations as recently as 2015.”
