Hello all!

I was thinking we could start in April to give everyone time to sign up and think of their favorite books. Thoughts? We also need to decide who will choose the first book!


- Liana

Mickey Kowaleski (mick_mak) | 4 comments I nominate Liana and/or Joana to pick the first book since this is their brainchild! Then they can nominate the next person to pick a book, then that person nominates someone else, etc etc

Joana Arruda | 3 comments Hi, friends! I'm currently in a tumultuous relationship with my thesis, so I apologize for just picking a book now!

The book I've chosen for our first ever discussion is "Nine Hills to Nambonokaha" by Sarah Erdman. It's a young woman's memoir that chronicles her time in the Ivory Coast, where she served as a health worker in the Peace Corps in the 1990s. I think (hope) this caters to everyone's interests. It's really well-written, has a bit of history, and has great conversations about Western conceptions of science and local African traditions and how Erdman often had trouble reconciling the two. I hope you guys like it!

And we have an excellent choice by the one and only, Joana Arruda! <3

Let's get the book, start reading, and plan to discuss by May 1 at some point!

I like the idea of picking a choice 2 weeks before the new month begins to give everyone time to get the book. Once the nominee for the month chooses a book, they can also choose the next person. Thoughts?

Another rule: you must choose the other person like you're choosing a Pokemon. Okay, just kidding, this is getting out of hand.
