‘Fraternity’ Nominated for NAACP Award, Named to Best of 2012 Lists

December 19th, 2012 by 

Journalist Diane Brady’s book “Fraternity”—the non-fiction account of Rev. John Brooks’ efforts to recruit African-American students to Holy Cross in the late 1960s that debuted to rave reviews last spring—is again receiving high acclaim.

Named among the top 10 best non-fiction books of 2012 by The Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland, Ohio, and among the top 100 books of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle, it was also selected by Amazon Books’ editorial team as one of the top 100 overall best reads this year, and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the category of “Literary Work – Non-Fiction.”
