  2. Beautifully done and congratulations!! I can’t wait to buy your book SE!

    I’m a big fiction fan yet I’d never quite seen it from this perspective. I immediately thought of when I buy a book and become so attached to a specific character. Then how deeply disappointed I am when I see signs that, they aren’t like me after all (they’re conservative, don’t exactly share my values, and so on). I agree, it opens our minds and forces us to relate to someone different than ourselves.

    For diversity in nonfiction, the book Colors of Nature comes to mind. It’s more compelling, IMO than the linear “pollution” narrative when it comes to social justice and the environment.

    • Hey Emmy! I’ve missed you. You’ve hit the nail on the head – perspective! I will check out Colors of Nature. I’m always looking to learn something new.

      • This is the link for the book BTW, it’s sort of an obscure title.

        I’ve missed you as well! My work season either ends October 14, or Sept 9. I’m hoping for the latter honestly.
