After several false starts, I‘m going to give #AmericanDirt another go. If for no other reason but to form my own opinion. But I do have some #LatinxAuthors on deck for clarity and balance. Always looking for additional recommendations, please. #KnowledgeIsPower

Release day! Excited to read this memoir by a Mexican poet. Definitely a great option for a migrant story to read instead of #americandirt

Cinfhen Looks really good. Thanks for posting and sharing 1mo

My #AUDayReadathon hasn‘t worked out too well for me. Pop-in visitors, foster kitten messes, long town breakfast in the park... But I still have 5 hours to go. Everyone else seems to be doing well!

This was a compelling read. Non-stop and the writing was so vivid I FELT the fear and danger. #AmericanDirt

So if you are interested in reading this book, I'd like to invite you to go read the tweets #AmericanDirt This book is a white washed novel of the lives experiences of Mexicans and immigrants.

Here's a link that's talk about the issues surrounding this book. https://tropicsofmeta.com/2019/12/12/pendeja-you-aint-steinbeck-my-bronca-with-f...

#Controversy

Scochrane26 I‘ve seen some comments about this book & am glad to know so I don‘t read it. 1mo
rsteve388 I was so pissed when I read the article I posted. I sadly feel into the trap of wanting to read this book cause it was so widely advertised and was on a bunch of different "Must Read Lists" even Oprah's! 1mo
rsteve388 Holy shit the story gets worse!!! The author got her nails done, like the cover of her book and... At her publishing party event she wrapped the center pieces in Barbed WIRE!!!! Ahhhhh how do you not know how wrong that is??? 1mo
Skygoddess1 I first heard about this book, when my bookstore announced her eventual tour stop a couple months ago and said it would be a ticketed event. This was before the controversy of the story came out, so not knowing who this woman was or even what the story was about as to why my local indie felt the need to pre-sell tickets to her signing, I read the synopsis. After reading the synopsis, I said a hard no and pass! Since the controversy, same answer 1mo
