Yesterday on Facebook, former president Barack Obama revealed the 5 books he’s been reading this summer. If you’re still looking for a good summer read, then you might want to pick up a copy of one (or more) of these books.
“Educated is a remarkable memoir of a young woman raised in a survivalist family in Idaho who strives for education while still showing great understanding and love for the world she leaves behind.”
“Set after WWII, Warlight by Michael Ondaatje is a meditation on the lingering effects of war on family.”
“With the recent passing of V.S. Naipaul, I reread A House for Mr Biswas, the Nobel Prize winner’s first great novel about growing up in Trinidad and the challenge of post-colonial identity.”
“An American Marriage by Tayari Jones is a moving portrayal of the effects of a wrongful conviction on a young African-American couple.”
“Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases.”
