Finished Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place by Terry Tempest Williams on January 6th and will be counting it as my book from the U.S. An amazingly touching book that weaves family trauma and ecological devastation together flawlessly.

Finished Civilized Girl by Jully Makini, a poetry collection that is one of the firsts to be written by a woman from the Solomon Islands and was published as part of a program to facilitate the publication of works by Pacific women writers.

Listened to Highway of Tears: A True Story of Racism, Indifference and the Pursuit of Justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls by Jessica McDiarmid on Audible. The book was very informative but also brought a not-often-seen humanizing aspect to the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada.

Cassidy | 18 comments Many of the books that I planned on reading for this challenge were from my library, which is now closed due to the coronavirus. I'll try to continue on as much as I can with e-books and audiobooks for now.
