To close out Uganda for #foodandlit2023, we read A Good Trade and Beatrice‘s Goat. Both books center around the poverty and lack of education in Uganda, and both have white saviors. After reading these books, my daughter and I made paper beads while going on a Google Earth tour of Uganda. My oh my… sooo many churches.

An epic tale of Uganda, family, Tradition vs Colonialism, spirits, curses, and intergenerational trauma. If you can get your hands on the edition with Aaron Bady's Introduction, I highly recommend it, especially if you are reading this from a white, Western space.

i couldn‘t finish this novel because its a lot to read. i plan on finishing it at another time. nothing against the author, but i can‘t give the author the respect the novel deserves by not giving my full attention to it.

I‘m bailing on this one for now. It‘s very hard to get into. It‘s about when Idi Amin threw all the Asians out of #Uganda. It is following a teenage boy in two timelines—growing up there, and just as the order came down and his extended family all have to leave. Knowing that‘s coming, it‘s really hard to “get excited” about it. I‘m not going to mark it as a bail because it doesn‘t deserve a bad rating on Litsy. It‘s just not for me right now.

Texreader #foodandlit Fortunately a significant part of “Walking the Nile” audiobook that I‘m listening to now takes place in Uganda. 5d
Catsandbooks Oh that's too bad! I think you would like the book I read! 5d

Ricky was abducted in 1989 and forced to join the LRA in #Uganda. The violence he witnessed and participated in is tough to read, but the story is well told and ultimately hopeful. Ricky‘s story alternates with the perspective of another injured child soldier about 20 years later meeting the adult Ricky who is now helping other children/teens in the same kind of situation.

5/5 ⭐️ A beautiful coming of age story about a girl in Uganda. You see how all the members of her community and family play a role in her life. Themes of feminism in a culture that is male dominated. Strong female characters. I only wish there was a glossary for the many ugandan words, just to add to more of my understanding and enjoyment.
