The City of Chicago is suggesting you read a Toni Morrision novel this summer.

The latest selection for the One Book One Chicago program is Morrison's most recent work, A Mercy.

The book is the 19th book chosen since the program launched in 2001.

A Mercy is set in the late 17th century and tells the story of a young slave girl on a northeast American farm.
