#NonficNov

#NonficNov reading wrap-up! 📚 I fizzled out on the blogging and photo prompts for this event, but I read plenty. Finished these 9 books. If I had to pick a favorite, it's ALL THE REAL INDIANS DIED OFF. Dunbar-Ortiz tackles the most common myths and misconceptions about Native peoples, and does a fantastic job showing how those myths are perpetuated at every level of our society, why they're so harmful, and how we can correct that misinformation.

I think perhaps Francisco Cantu' has an interesting story to tell about why he chose to join the border patrol, and why he later chose to leave it. Unfortunately for me, this book wasn't it. It felt a bit like a rough draft - like an author just starting to organize his thoughts, waiting for an editor to help shape it into a cohesive narrative. I wish I could have read THAT book. Interesting moments, but it never came fully together. #nonficnov

Reggie What‘s your favorite solo to play? I love the craziness of Muzcynski but like the Ian Clarke stuff. And sometimes just sometimes I like Pan and the Birds. Lol 1mo
lovelybookshelf @Reggie I love Muczynski, too! I have to admit, I'm a sucker for those French conservatory pieces. Give me Taffanel or Gaubert anytime! I also love Katherine Hoover. 1mo

Citizen: An American Lyric | Claudia Rankine

My fiction/nonfiction book pairing for #NonficNov is FRIDAY BLACK, a collection of speculative fiction short stories with CITIZEN, nonfiction essays, images, and poetry. If you found one of these books powerful, I think you‘ll find the other equally compelling. They both creatively tackle the exhaustion that comes with dealing with microaggressions (and flat-out aggression) of being Black in an America that perpetuates institutional racism.

#NonficNov 3 - Favorite Recent #Nonfiction ?
I listened to the audiobook of Austin Channing Brown's memoir I'M STILL HERE. She narrates it herself, and I highly recommend that format. This focuses on middle class America, with a Christian perspective. Her encounters with "good" white people were especially insightful and encouraged thinking about the differences between "not racist" and "antiracist." #nonfictionnovember #audiobooks

MatchlessMarie Loved this book and got to meet her! I do want to experience the audio version though. 1mo

Hello, @jenniferw88 and @jhod ! Here are four possibilities for #lmpbc . I‘ve not read any of them. Do you have a preference? Have either of you selected your book yet?

If any Littens would like to give their views on these books it would be most welcome.

jenniferw88 I haven't read any of them. For me it's a tie between Ghost Wall (which is on my GR wishlist) & Barracoon (as I've been eyeing it on Kindle!). 2mo
jenniferw88 And I'm probably going to choose Macbeth as my book, as I'm doing #NonFicNov 2mo
jhod Happy with any Libby, thanks! 2mo

Is anyone running an event for non fiction in November? I want to make that my focus in November and it would be fun to do it with folks.
