Lisa Lieberman Thanks for doing this, Aubrey. It makes me feel less powerless. Maybe we should start a group and read some of these books, to get a conversation going?


message 2: by lisa_emily (new)

lisa_emily Plenty to read here for the next four years, plenty to remind us why we should stay angry and push back against racism, misogyny, homophobia, anti-science thinking, and all sort of attitudes that are regressive, crude, and divisive.

I didn't actually make this list, Lisa, but that's a good idea. I'm full up on my 500 GBBW work, so anyone who wants to step in is welcome.


message 4: by Vicki (new)

Vicki We are more mid-Trump now. If we are lucky, we'll make it through and someday be post-Trump.


message 5: by Manray9 (new)

Manray9 As Richard Hofstadter's book relates, anti-intellectualism isn't a phenomenon of the Trump era. It has been an American characteristic for many decades.
