Before She Was Found | Heather Gudenkauf
post image

The reason why I have so much extra time to read right now...a stress fracture brought on by too much running. No running for six weeks (I‘ve got four weeks left 😢), no running the three half marathons I signed up for this fall/winter...BUT more time to read! So there is a silver lining at least 😊

Starting this book tonight.

Nebklvr Heal thoroughly and enjoy your reading 5d

A history of the American women‘s suffrage movement told through biographical sketches of some of the lesser known activists in the fight for the vote. Informative, inspiring, and entertaining!

Just started this book, which profiles a variety of activists within the suffrage movement, and there are so many moments of fierceness from these women, like this passage on Sojourner Truth. Love love love this book so far!

I am fiercely proud to be a public school teacher and just as proud to be a union leader in my district. UTLA is fighting the good fight for better schools and better conditions for students. Public education is a fundamental right in a democracy, and people need to stand up to protect it. Support the strike by not crossing picket lines and by wearing red tomorrow (Mon. 1/14). #utla #redfored #solidarity

Alfoster Stay proud! I taught for 40 years and participated in 4 strikes. Painful but worth it! You rock!👏👏😍😍😍 10mo
Readergrrl Preach, teacher!!! We are wearing red here in CT in solidarity with our LA sisters and brothers! We need to stand up for our students and our profession!!! ✊🏼👹👺💋💃🏻👠🧣⛑🎒🧶🐞🐙🦞🦑🦐🦀🍄🌹🍁🌺🌷☄️💥🔥🍎🍓🍉🍒🌶🥩🍟🥫🍝🍷🏓🥊🛷🚣🏻‍♀️🎪🥁🎸🎯🚗🏎🚒🚨🚘⛽️🚢🗼🌋⛩🎇🌄☎️🧰🧯🧲🧰🧨🧱💉🌡🎈🎁🏮🧧📮💌📕🧮📌📍✂️❤️‼️🔴♥️♦️🚩 10mo

As someone who struggles with anxiety, there‘s a lot of stress in this book that I‘m finding isn‘t making it the most enjoyable of reads, but I‘m pushing through. It‘s been raining all day, so my best friend Monty and I have been snuggled up watching movies and reading all day. #dogsoflitsy

Loved it. The thing with biographies is that you know the person is going to die at the end, but it‘s still sad when you get to that point in the book. So long, Mr. Darrow. Yours was an interesting ride.

Climbing into bed with Monty and a book. Clarence Darrow led a fascinating life—friend to the labor movement, brilliant in the courtroom, and a participant in some of the most important trials in American history. This biography covers all of that and also doesn‘t shy away from exploring Darrow‘s many flaws. So far, a great read, and nice company on this Saturday night.

Oh boy, I don‘t know about this one. Maybe it‘s because of Friday‘s shooting or the fact that the narrator is annoying or something else entirely that I just can‘t pin down, but I‘m not feeling this one, about the aftermath of a school shooting told by a teacher who had (wrongfully) been accused of having some involvement in it.

But anyway, here‘s a pic of my super cute boy Monty, who is keeping me company during my evening reading. #dogsoflitsy
