Craig Ferguson, the host of History Channel's Join or Die and former host of CBS' Late Late Show has selected Laila Lalami's novel The Moor's Account to share with Book of the Month members.

As he says, "It's a fictional account, or an imagined account, of the first black explorer of what eventually became the United States. It covers the morality of slavery, it covers the morality of colonialism, exploration, a clash of cultures, and it's a good old rollicking adventure story as well." View his full endorsement above.
