I’ve decided to change things up a bit and post my Interesting Finds segment on the last Tuesday of the month regardless of whether it’s the fifth one or not. I come across so many interesting articles during the month I’d love to share anyway so this won’t be a hardship for me.
Recently, a member of my book club discussed possibly reading a book by Lionel Shriver. And an anthology I just finished (and LOVED), contained a story by her. It makes me made that she’s a good writer because I have issues with how she uses her platform. Why? Read this response by a POC who walked out on her speech at the Brisbane writers festival.
Here is Shriver’s whole speech.
And here is an excellent discussion of both of those links by Jim C. Hines.
Moving on, have you heard of the Lone Stars Program? Basically, it’s Librarians making (awesome) book lists. Here are their next great reads.
If you don’t have Pinterest (why don’t you?), you’ll have to print this last one. It’s a reading challenge for 2017 that might help you expand your reading life. If you go to the actual website you can print the graphic for the 26 or 52 book challenge. I printed the 52!
