In obtaining some great collections of books from the Library of Congress Surplus Book Program, we stumbled upon some amazing discoveries that are new books to our collection:

In Looking at Come On In,

we found our invited authors from Authors Among US, from April 13, 2018 and April 25, 2015, Zoraida Cordova, Alaya Dawn Johnson, and Adi Alsaid in this amazing collection of stories about immigration. We meet again -LOVING IT!

We knew we were on to something when e invited Alaya Dawn Johnson, Adi Alsaid, and Zoraida Cordova to Authors Among US in Mexico City years ago, and here they are AGAIN together!

In examining Child of the Moon, we loved the diversity we discover of Jessica Semaan’s poetry:

We stumbled across a sequel, to what will be our high school summer read of Animal Farm, a political aftermath of a book that was dedicated to United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

and are excited to see a way to discern, analyze and be informed about periods of our history in the 60’s and 70’s studying the origins of feminist movements.

Coming off the cuff of the value of Books of Diversity, we were excited to see how closely related we are to connecting to Ellen Oh’s call for books of diversity.
