White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo – I know there’s some backlash on a white author cashing in on a black cause or issue but I do think some white people need to hear criticism from another white person in order to let down defenses. I appreciated it.
Hit Makers: How to Succeed in an Age of Distraction by Derek Thompson – Interesting along the lines of Malcolm Gladwell sort of research on why things work or become “hits”.
The Dutch House by Ann Patchett – My library loan expired midway and so I didn’t finish. I was howling with disappointment as I was so thoroughly enjoying it. I finished it in July and loved it.
The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History by John M Barry – Current events dictate some educating about past ones. A long book so finished it in July.
