Uncounted by Gilda R. Daniels
Voting rights are under attack. If we want a fair election, consider this book required reading. Connecting the dots of voter disenfranchisement, voting rights expert Gilda Daniels reveals the cycles of voter suppression from our nation’s founding into present day. Through the lens of her African-American ancestors, Daniels explores the deceptive practices of the past – and draws a direct line to the tactics being used today to disenfranchise voters of color, the poor, students, and the elderly. A sobering history of the continuous assault on access to the ballot box, with new ideas on how we can protect the right to vote.
Dangerous Boobies - Caitlin Brodnick
What is funny about an elective mastectomy? Everything, as it turns out, in this heartwarming memoir from the fearless and, dare I say, *perky* standup comedian Caitlin Brodnick. At age 28, Brodnick chose to have a preventative double mastectomy after testing positive for the BRCA1 genetic mutation. Sharing every aspect of her journey – from giving up her nipples, to winning an Emmy for the docuseries produced by Glamour to chronicle her surgery – DANGEROUS BOOBIES is a bold and surprising delight from a writer the Washington Post called “part advocate, part comedian, and part the girl you want to sit next to on the airplane.”
