Dreamland Burning


Rowan Chase is a biracial black 17-year-old from a wealthy family whose life changes when the skeleton of a murdered man is discovered underneath the home that her family has owned for nearly a century. The mystery of the dead man connects Rowan to William Tillman, born to a white father and an Osage Indian mother and 17 years old in 1921. Dreamland Burning juxtaposes Rowan and Will’s narratives, revealing parallels between the past with the Tulsa Race Riots and the present with modern day racism.

Dreamland Burning is a WOW Recommends: Book of the Month for May 2017.
