Books from the Library of J. Saunders Redding
J Saunders Redding was a prolific, and much sought-after book reviewer on a wide variety of topics, but he was particularly known for his reviews of African–American literature and books on social issues. He also assembled an important collection of African–American poetry, fiction, and criticism–much of which was no longer in print–– which he made available to students and colleagues. The University of Delaware Library holds a number of books from J. Saunders Redding’s personal collection, most of which are inscribed to him by their authors.
