"In honor of the World Day of Social Justice (February 20th), I am hosting the first Annual Social Justice Theme Read during the month of February. I hope that this theme read will educate us on social injustice in the world and allow us to appreciate organizations that have been working for social justice locally and world-wide."
There will be two read-alongs:
Check out this post for more information. Also this more recent post that has dates for the read-alongs.To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee (for the classics/literature crowd)
Noughts & Crosses, by Malorie Blackman (for the YA/Dystopia crowd)
I will be reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I am also planning to read Devil in a Blue Dress, the first in a mystery series by Walter Mosley that combines detective fiction with themes of racial disparity and social injustices experienced by racial minorities. I will be on the lookout for other books that will fit the theme.
