Too Heavy for Your Pocket

Tennessee-born Holder takes us back to Nashville in the summer of 1961. The Freedom Riders are embarking on a courageous journey into the Deep South. When 20-year-old Bowzie Brandon gives up a life-changing college scholarship to join the movement, he’ll have to convince his loved ones—and himself—that shaping his country’s future might be worth jeopardizing his own. Too Heavy for Your Pocket was called “illuminating and moving” by The New York Times and is the recipient of the 2017 Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award.
