Back in January I signed up for the Diversity Rocks! Challenge. I committed to reading at least 12 books by authors of diverse culture/ethnicity/nationalities, preferably authors new to me. I want to update my list of books read and what's on my list for the next couple weeks.
Read and reviewed here on the blog:
|Shadows of the Pomegranate Tree (Paperback)||Ali, Tariq|
|The Twentieth Wife: A Novel (Paperback)||Sundaresan, Indu|
|Song Yet Sung (Hardcover)||McBride, James|
|Children of the Night: The Best Short Stories by Black Writers, 1967 to the Present (Paperback)||Naylor, Gloria|
|Black American Short Stories (American Century Series)||Clarke, John Henrik|
I also checked these out of the library, which are about cross cultural situations even if the author is white like me:
Don't Let's go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, vol. 1 & 2 by M. T. Anderson
