The 2014 Zambia A to Z team has been talking books in addition to reading books and preaching the value of literacy. Our bus and plane trips, daily walk or drive to the schools we have served and two dozen evenings together have given us lovely hours of discussion. Like giraffes to the Acacia tree we keep coming back to what we’ ve been reading, have read and want to read. We have scratched lists on electronic tablets and scraps of paper, discovering that many of our favorites were read by others in the quartet.
We’ d like to share with you some of our ” hot picks”:
“The End of Your Life Book Club” by Will Schwalbe
“Grayson” by Lynn Cox
“The Boys in the Boat” by Daniel James Brown
“The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein
“The Red Tent” by Anita Diamant
“Being Henry David” by Cal Armistead
“Sarah’ s Key” by Tatiana de Rosnay
” Annie Freeman’ s Fabulous Traveling Funeral” by Kris Radish
” Left to Tell” by Immaculee Ilibagiza
“The Hiding Place” by Corrie ten Boom
Let the reading begin! Missing all of you and our Zambia friends.
So many books, so little time. I must put some of these titles on hold at the library.
