One of my top five favorite poets, Joy Harjo was recently named US Poet Laurete. A much deserved award, as this book of poems reinforces.

I don‘t remember how I came to know of this book, but it was on my Southern lit shelf, so I picked it for my Saturday read. Thus far, I‘m glad I did.

A painfully illuminating memoir that is a testament to the horrors of the refugee experience. I found it particularly helpful in understanding present border concerns.

Is anyone else reading this #BOTM?

Lisawb I read a couple weeks ago - had it on pre-order. I really loved it, but, full disclosure, the author is a high school and Facebook friend of mine, so I might be biased. :) What do/did you think of it? 5mo
peacegypsy @Lisawb I‘m about 1/2 done and find it interesting and enjoyable. I work with this population of parents, so it feels good to have my experiences validated. Great book, thus far! 😊 5mo

I typically enjoy TC Boyle‘s storytelling, and I can say that again regarding this novel. Boyle also centers on two key interests of mine: war and mental health.

I love Joshilyn Jackson‘s novels. I read this one; the audio versions are much better as her Southern telling is so enjoyable. My advice? Don‘t read her works, listen to them. Then they all become “picks.” 😊

I normally wouldn‘t recommend this terribly clichéd, predictable book, but it came to me during some rough days and proved a good distraction. For that, I appreciate it.

So I‘m doing this, and I‘m not sure how I feel about it. A co-worker called it a must-read, so I‘m giving it a chance. I have to add that my co-workers aren‘t book savvy, so there‘s that. 🤷🏻‍♀️

A tale of America that explores, in well-researched prose, a thorough depiction of America. Thought-provoking.
