#RedRoseSeptember #catchup
There are more than #TwoTribes in the Philippines, in fact there are 134 ethnic groups, mostly indigenous, there. About a dozen tribes were put on display at the St. Louis Exposition, the most popular were the Igorrotes & a tribe of them was recruited & brought for display at Coney Island in 1905. I like to give this fascinating yet dismaying book about their treatment a little love now & then—it‘s a great book.

A Little Life gets all of the love, what about The People in the Trees? A beautifully written, & disturbing, tale about Dr. Norton's ill-fated & decisive encounter with #twotribes of the fictional Micronesian state of U'ivu.

arlenefinnigan Wasn't aware of this at all. Hanya Yanagihara doesn't really do easy light reads, does she? 3w

I read this book years ago and what occurred between the Hutu and Tutsi in Rwanda is beyond heartbreaking. Even though I don't have words I can put to this it is important that we know about our history and never forget.

arlenefinnigan Sounds a very tough read. 3w
Jess861 @arlenefinnigan It was definitely a tough read, but well worth it. 3w
DGRachel I checked this out from the library last year, I think, but had to take it back unread because I‘d just finished a couple of books on Syrian refuges and needed a rainbows and puppies and kittens break. I do want to get back to it, though. 3w
keepingupwiththepenguins Ohhh I've wanted to read this one for ages, never come across a copy! 3w

Technically not so much #TwoTribes as Two Gangs, this (now not quite so) modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet saw the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks cause many unnecessary deaths. Almost 60 years on, it still has relevance - so much so that a new version directed by Steven Speilberg is due out next year 😱 Screenplay writer Tony Kushner has stated he will be leaving the #Music intact.


arlenefinnigan Yeah this works! 3w

TheEllieMo @OriginalCyn620 😱 I‘ve seen the film a few times and seen a stage version, too. I love it. You must see it - if not the 1961 version, then Spielberg‘s next year! 3w

This memoir is utterly heartbreaking. Tuhabonye was the lone survivor in a horrific attack of genocide, involving #TwoTribes in Africa, the Hutu and the Tutsi. What he witnessed, and what he escaped, no one of any age should witness. It‘s so good he told his story. #RedRoseSeptember

arlenefinnigan Sounds like a horrifying story. 3w
Cinfhen Oh, I totally WANT to read this but I don‘t think my heart can bear it. 3w
