2021 Book Recommendation: The Sentence by Louise Erdrich

A small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the store's most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls' Day, but she simply won't leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration that she survived by reading with murderous attention, must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and furious reckoning.

10/29/2021

2021 Book Recommendation:

Tarana Burke is the founder and activist behind the largest social movement of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, the me too movement, but first she had to find the strength to say me too herself. Unbound is the story of how she came to those two words, after a childhood growing up in the Bronx with a loving mother that took a terrible turn when she was sexually assaulted. Tarana's debut memoir explores how to piece back together our fractured selves, how to empathize with our past selves, and how to begin to love ourselves unabashedly. Healing starts with empowerment, and to Tarana, empowerment starts with empathy. This is her story of finding that for herself, and then spreading it to an entire world.

Synopsis from @goodreads
