Reading Inspiration 7.31.16

“Take a good book to bed with you – books do not snore.” – Thea Dorn

Publisher’s weekly has released their list of books to look out for this fall. A few I am excited about:

  • Zadie Smith’s Swing Time
  • Modified: GMO’s and the Threat to Our Food, Our Land, Our Future by Caitlin Shetterly
  • They Can’t Kill Us All: The Story of #BlackLivesMatter by Wesley Lowery
  • Wonder Woman: The True Amazon by Jill Thompson
  • IQ by Joe Ide

James Alan McPherson, the first black writer to win the Pulitzer Prize in fiction, died this week. Read more about his personal journey as an author here.

A beautiful excerpt from Andrés Neuman’s essay collection about traveling through Latin America “How to Travel Without Seeing.”
