The news out of Charlottesville and around the country in the past week has been bewildering. It’s bizarre to watch a president struggle to condemn racist hate. It’s encouraging to see people come together and condemn this hate, but at the same time I can’t help wondering how we got here in the first place.

We’ve overlooked too much, sat by in uncomfortable silence, allowed injustice to go unch...

The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson

This is an incredible book. It tells the story of the great migration of blacks out of the South by following three different people and telling their life stories, from birth to death. It includes wider historical context, and just sets a powerful b ...more

Mind of My Mind by Octavia E. Butler

This is the second book in the Patternmaster series and the sequel to Wild Seed. Much like she did in the Xenogenesis series, Butler changes the point of view in this story and there's very little focus on the Wild Seed's Anyanwu, who was really the ...more

Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler

I'm not a big fan of the weird, unexplained fantasy elements, but this is an intense and sweeping narrative that covers centuries. That's always impressive when done well and incredibly engaging.

Update: Re-reading this book, I'm still struck by how d

I read this one aloud to the kids after seeing the trailer for the new movie. I'm always amazed at how science-based this story is, how little action there is, and yet how entertaining it still is. I do think Meg gets a little whiny, which is probabl ...more

What a weird and wonderful story. I think it's classified as YA because the main character is 15, but it's really a bigger and broader story than the usual YA story. I only mention that because I've been in a reading slump, and although I enjoy the Y ...more

The Way of the Writer by Charles R. Johnson
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is one of those 'how to be a writer' books that's incredibly inspiring and practical. However, it's very much not a touchy-feely, 'you can do it,' let's laugh about writing shitty drafts kind of thing. This is pretty much the opposite of Anne La ...more

Farewell Speeches by Barack Obama
Rate this book
Clear rating
These are the final official speeches from Barack and Michelle Obama as president and first lady. They are inspiring, soaring, and hopeful. They are a powerful reminder of the American spirit and the idea that politics doesn't have to be a cess pool.

There's a lot to like in this book, but ultimately it felt like a letdown. The beginning started with such promise: space fights and lost memory and betrayal. But as the story continued it just got weirder and weirder for no good reason. I held on to ...more

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

Clear rating
It's not as funny as I would have hoped, but the history and context of South Africa under apartheid more than makes up for it. It's definitely a more interesting celebrity memoir than the standard fare.

“The whole point of all this reading is to learn and grow. So, finally, talk about what you read. Think and reflect on the things you read. Process the ideas. Jot down the questions. Books stimulate thought, so take advantage of it and write it down.”
Kevin D. Hendricks, 137 Books in One Year: How to Fall in Love With Reading

“When the song of the angels is stilled, When the star in the sky is gone, When the kings and princes are home, When the shepherds are back with their flock, The work of Christmas begins: To find the lost, To heal the broken, To feed the hungry, To release the prisoner, To rebuild the nations, To bring peace among brothers, To make music in the heart. Howard Thurman, the late author, professor and civil rights leader”
