I have wanted to start a bookclub for a long time, and finally, this past August, I launched the Imagine then Believe bookclub! This bookclub focuses on backlist titles from all genre and authors – YA, fantasy, historical fiction, literary fiction, etc. Written by authors from around the world. The aim is to ensure our reading life is diverse, and to challenge our way of thinking through imagination.
In August 2020, the first bookclub pick was MORNINGS IN JENIN by Susan Abulhawa! This book was poignant, exhilarating, heartbreaking and powerful. It was a book focused on the injustices of a Palestinian family through generations. This book sparked wonderful discussions, and we even had the author join us via zoom at the end of the month to talk about the book!
The September 2020 book pick is I AM NOT YOUR PERFECT MEXICAN DAUGHTER by Erika L. Sanchez. This is a young adult book that was long listed for the National Book Award. I am very excited to read this throughout the month, and I hope you are too! You can join our discussions via Instagram by posting, or you can join our Facebook group!
