The Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2022 Longlist! See comments below for a link to the announcement video. I haven‘t read a one and they all sound extremely interesting.

I‘m for sure going to read tagged. I bought it after it won the Pulitzer, but haven‘t gotten to it yet. I also plan to get The Escape Artist (current US pub date Oct 18). Maybe Otherlands and Super-Infinite too? Shortlist to be announced Oct 10.

#BaillieGifford2022

squirrelbrain I‘ve only read Invisible Child, which will likely be in my favourites list for 2022. @Mitch recommends Otherlands. 6d
Mitch I‘ve also got Super Infinite on my shelf Staring at me! 6d

This book is truly heartbreaking, frustrating, & so eye opening. It‘s a definite must for anyone working with families dealing with trauma, housing insecurity, poverty, education. The book highlights how inter generational trauma & systematic racism continue to harm and disrupt families especially in large cities. I‘ve worked with families in poverty & Section 8 housing but I feel like there is so much that I learned from this book. The system

ncsufoxes just plain sucks. It just all needs a massive restructuring. I‘m hopeful that with people looking at what a family is going through with a different lens that there will be better systems & procedures put in place. I felt for the family as they were just dismissed & consistently mistreated. Amazing writing for such a tough subject. #nonfictionbingo2022 prompt: I‘m an outcast #booked2022 prompt: About sisters 2w
Cinfhen Beautiful review - sounds heartbreaking but impactful 💜 2w
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Sounds like a difficult, but must read. Having gone through something similar with Housing Authorities… the services they offered didn‘t fit my needs sadly… so much more could be done if done just a bit differently. 2w
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!! 2w

If Diane Guerrero hadn‘t made it big, the story of children of undocumented immigrants who are deported may have never been told. This is the middle grade version of her memoir and I wouldn‘t hesitate to recommend it for school and classroom libraries so children can be familiarized with the issues immigrant families face and so children of undocumented immigrants know they are not alone.

“Despite every claim otherwise, he's a coward. And a coward with a gun is treacherous.”

“The future expected you. Now it mourns for you.”

Such a powerful book. Chapters were a survey of American history with emphasis on racism and the role of the church. There was a lot of history I have never been taught before. This book has impacted my life and thinking very much and I am grateful.
