Nonfiction November #NonFicNov

image

I will be participating in this year’s Nonfiction November.

The books I hope to read are all focused around deeper study and understanding of US racial issues, the promotion of civil rights and equal opportunity awareness. My first book will be a historical memoir of the integration of Little Rock Arkansas HS wdcbympb Warriors Don’t Cry by  Melba Pattillo Beals. I purchased this tradeback recently.

Other selections I know I want to read but will take more than one month to do so are:

Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me

We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jaqueline Woodson

Kristen Green’s Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County

Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel Tatum

The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander

Devil in the Grove by Gilbert King

Shannon Sullivan’s Good White People and Debby Irving’s Waking Up White

(NOTE:  This focus is entirely MINE and I do not mean to imply that NonFiction November has to have any theme at all!!!)

The itinerary for the month includes opportunities for discussion and I encourage you to click on the button above to explore more. The first week, Kim will discuss YOUR YEAR IN NONFIC; week 2 is BOOK PAIRING hosted by Leslie; third week will be Becca discussing NONTRADITIONAL nonfic; and the last week is a book club discussion of I AM MALALA hosted by Katie. Join in!

PS. I might also dip into a cookbook or two and post about pie. Reference books are nonfiction, right? 😉

  1. Thank you for the reminder! I really need to add more non-fiction to my stacks. I really would like to read Between the World and Me. So much buzz about that book. Great choices!
