Author/Blogger Says Reading is the Way to Racial Reconciliation

Greensboro, N.C.—October 2, 2008—Linda Leigh Hargrove, who touts two published novels and owns 1721 Media, LLC, a graphic design company, has a reconciliation mission. Her love of books has driven her to devote her blog, 17Seeds.com, to a celebration of books with reconciliation themes during the month of October, National Book Month.

Hargrove will be using 17Seeds.com to feature books for children and adults alike. Although, her reconciler’s fiction is geared for adults, she says books have the power to transform anyone at any level. “Words are not ‘black’ or ‘white.’ They are like ambassadors. They have power to heal or hinder. Good words get people talking. Great words move people into action.”

Considering the blog’s tagline, “Reconciling Faith and Race,” featuring books that shine the light on racial sensitivity, intentional interaction, and interdependence from a biblical viewpoint seems only natural.
