The War on the West | Douglas Murray

Murray makes some astute observations. He tackles contemporary and age old issues. His work is always engrossing and contentious! He reads the audio book so hon get a real sense of his voice.

I've been reading this #WCCPBA nominee to my students this week with a challenge: they think they are too old for counting books. This story takes place in Zanzibar, could they write a counting cook that takes place in WA state? It's about going to the beach. We live 10 minutes from a beach. The difference? It's 50°F/10°C here. #underthedustcover

I think this would be a grat book to read when learning about differences, diversity and inclusion. I think this is a cool analogy to talk about race.

This poetry picture book is powerful. A little girl tells her story of being black by comparing her color to the other colors in the rainbow

Came across this book reading about craft/writing & how culture shapes narrative, readers‘ expectations, & how writer‘s workshops in the US are geared towards writing within a Western literary tradition & meeting those expectations. That author recommended this book which collects three lectures given at Harvard in which Jen explores & discusses differences between the literary traditions of the East & the West. Definitely an interesting read.
