    Yara Shahidi

    Top Ten Books

    After going professional at the age of six — with turns in TV and print campaigns for McDonalds and Ralph Lauren, among others, the Minnesota native Yara Shahidi got her break as Zoey Johnson on the sitcom Black-ish, alongside Tracey Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson. In 2014, the NAACP honored her with an Image Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy. An avid fan of social media, Shahidi has not been shy to use her platform to protest Trump's immigration ban, tweeting in January, "If my Baba was stuck in an airport because of a Muslim ban 39 years ago, he would have never fallen in love with my mama." Next year, she stars in Grown-ish, following her Black-ish character's life through college and into adulthood. As art, so with life: Shahidi recently announced that she's been accepted for a place at Harvard University.

    Below are Yara Shahidi’s favorite books, available to purchase individually or as a set.
