Picks of the Litter(ati) July 25, 2012

A while ago, I read and quite enjoyed How To Be Black, by Baratunde Thurston. Its deft and humourous examination of blackness in America really got me thinking about race and race politics. So, when I saw No matter what...they’ll call this book racist: how our fear of talking honestly about race hurts us all, by Harry Stein, I grabbed it. I can’t wait to read more about this topic.

Two other titles that I’m interested in reading are Here Come the Brides! Reflections on Lesbian Love and Marriage, edited by Audrey Bilger & Michele Kort and Debating Same Sex Marriage, by John Corvino and Maggie Gallagher. The latter is from Oxford University Press, which is typically an indication that great quality brain food is only a flip of a page away.

Oops - that should have been "several" blogs will merge...

Thanks for your comment! Just for the record, the food blog was written by another author, not me. In the fall, seral lifestyle blogs (Slice of Calgary, as well as Eco-Action, Food and a few others) will merge. Watch for the changes!

Missing your timely, well-researched food blog--any chance of having it return come Fall?
