September is Dedicated to National Literacy Month
What are you reading today, September 6, for National Read a Book Day?
Today, I’m reading an ARC (advanced readers copy) of A Family in 6 Tones: A Refugee Mother, An American Daughter by Lan Cao and Harlan Margaret Van Cao. It’s a poignant and revealing memoir from the perspectives of a Vietnamese refugee and her American-born daughter….their cultural differences, their different life experiences, the expectations of culture, and typical mother/daughter misunderstandings.
This week I’m enthusiastically looking forward to reading Anxious People by Fredrik Backman! One of my most anticipated reads of the year!
Dolly Parton is a Champion for Literacy!
Whenever I think of literacy promotion, I think of philanthropist and singer/song writer Dolly Parton and her Literacy Program: Imagination Library. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that gifts free books to children from birth to age five in participating communities within the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Republic of Ireland. Her organization has mailed 143,820,914 books and counting! She is also reading books online for children during the pandemic.
Great Post Carol. We can never do enough to promote literacy.
I almost forgot to publish this today!
I love it!
I’m listening to the Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman it’s a fab contemporary cosy mystery set in an English retirement village.
Cozy mysteries are good! 🙌 I’ll look for it! Is it an arc?
No it’s a blog tour audiobook but it might be available on NetGalley. :/
Ok…just hopped over to netgalley and requested it!
Brilliant hope you get approved! 😀
Thanks for the rec!
You’re welcome I’m sharing my review on Thursday 😀
I read all of The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen as a reading retreat for National Read a Book Day, and it felt so relaxing.
🙌 That sounds great Kayla!
