I received a signed ARC of Wolfpack at the Be the Change event hosted at my university this past Friday. If you read my interview last week, you’ll know that that’s also where I got a chance to meet Elaine Welteroth. This week has truly been remarkable.
After I finished Wolfpack, I took a few pictures for my bookstagram:
I have been in love with Rudy Francisco’s poetry ever since I first listened to “Scars/To the New Boyfriend.” His writing is just so raw and honest. I feel like I can really understand what he’s been through, even if my past experiences have been completely different.
The books I chose for this prompt were both recommended to me by some of my favorite teachers. The first one comes from my middle school English teacher, Mrs. Macon. She introduced me to so much literature during that time period.
For this first prompt, I’m throwing it back quite a bit. The first book I chose was March by John Lewis. It’s the book that taught me about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movement.
And the second one is a book I read sooo long ago. I was probably in elementary school or something but I remember loving it. I learned so much about World War II by reading Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury.
