Each month, I provide Ms. readers with a list of new books being published by writers from historically underrepresented groups. Now more than ever, we need to read and buy books by women of color, and let’s continue to buy books by Black women writers. This month, all 24 of the books on the list are written by BIWOC writers, so get to it.
As I write this, much of the country is burning. As a queer white person who works hard to be an anti-racist accomplice, I sometimes find it challenging to know what to do to best support Black people and to collect and educate white people. But one thing I feel strongly about is this column. The whole goal of these lists is to help boost the signal of books by writers from underrepresented backgrounds.
Each month, I provide Ms. readers with a list of new books being published by writers from historically underrepresented groups. This month, I’ve included 32 titles on the list. Which ones strike your fancy?
Inside: the most exciting poetry collections coming your way this year, all by and for the rest of us: poets who are women, womxn, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, AAPI, international, LGBIA+, TGNC, queer, disabled, fat, immigrant, Muslim, neurodivergent, sex-positive or of other historically marginalized identities.

From gender identity to travel to the evolution of the soul, these 30 books are bound to get your 2020 journey off to an auspicious start.
While it had its ups and downs, 2019 was a great year for books written by women, trans and gender nonconforming writers and other historically marginalized writers. This year is shaping up to be even better—as evidenced by the 86 books in this very 2020 preview!
I receive a lot of new and forthcoming books each month to be considered for review or inclusion on these lists, but it is damn near impossible for me to know about every book publishing every month—although I do try!—and I am bound to miss some. To make up for it, I’m going to share some of those with you now!
