Back-To-School Book Series: Tochi Onyebuchi's 'Beasts Made Of Night'

We wrap up our back-to-school book series with a tale of good versus evil.

Imagine a chaotic, unjust world, where society's least powerful are forced to literally eat the sins of the powerful. One of these "sin-eaters," a boy named Taj, becomes the unlikely hero in this fantasy.

"Beasts Made of Night" is the debut novel from New Haven author Tochi Onyebuchi. He told us his work with incarcerated people influenced his writing.
