Because I haven’t stopped thinking about Lorraine Hansberry since seeing the exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, I’ve made my first meme. It would be wordy!

For a few years now I've kept a running log of the books I've been reading, mainly for my own interest, but also as a means of recommending and discussing books with others.

Latest Title

What We Made: Conversations on Art and Social Cooperation, Tom Finkelpearl (I’m reading this one for Hyperallergic.)

&

Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, Clarissa Pinkola Estés (A friend recommended this after bonding over it with a witchy woman while visiting a convent in Australia, which is pretty much among the highest recommendations a book can get.)
