What to Read in Light of Trump: Celebrating our Diversity

As we approach the 100th day of Donald Trump's presidency, these reading lists unfortunately remain as relevant as ever. We've seen Trump's attempts to implement his campaign promises to build a wall along the border with Mexico and ban Muslims from the country, which has us, as booksellers, thinking about books which push back against his ethno-nationalist view for the country. Here, then, is a short list of books which celebrate the full diversity of this country. 

This is the fourth in a series of posts responding to Trump's election. Don't miss the first three: Understanding What Happened, Fighting Back, and Syllabus Edition.

Here, then, are the reading lists for a few relevant classes this semester.

What to Read in Light of Trump: Understanding What Happened

All of us at Book Culture were shocked and unsettled by the results of the election earlier this month. As booksellers, we believe there are books for every situation, so we immediately started thinking about what books to turn to now; this is the first in a series of posts about books to read in reponse to Trump's election. For this first installment, we thought about what to read to try to understand what's happened.
