The MUM Book Discussion group will next meet on Friday, September 22.  Our title is Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me.  Here is a brief summary:


"For Ta-Nehisi Coates, history has always been personal. At every stage of his life, he's sought in his explorations of history answers to the mysteries that surrounded him--most urgently, why he, and other black people he knew, seemed to live in fear ... In [this book], Coates takes readers along on his journey through America's history of race and its contemporary resonances through a series of awakenings--moments when he discovered some new truth about our long, tangled history of race, whether through his myth-busting professors at Howard University, a trip to a Civil War battlefield with a rogue historian, a journey to Chicago's South Side to visit aging survivors of 20th century America's 'long war on black people,' or a visit with the mother of a beloved friend who was shot down by the police."  (publisher)

Here is where you can find the book:

  • There are several copies (of either the 2019 or 2022 printings) available in MiamiOhioLINK, and SearchOhio libraries.  
  • Amazon has the hardcover, paperback, and Kindle available, and has links to purchase the title from independent booksellers.

Our group is always finding interesting titles to share, and we look forward to the new things you'll bring to the table.  In addition to discussing Gender Queer, the group also shared these titles for consideration at their August 4 meeting:

  • All Boys Aren't Blue, George M. Johnson
  • We Have Always Been Here: A Queer Muslim Memoir, Samra Habib
  • Mad Honey, Jodi Picoult
