It Occurs to Me that I am America : New Stories and Art

Published a year after the inauguration of Donald Trump as President, as well as a year after The Women’s March, this book is a collection of original stories and art contributed by over 50 of the most famous and esteemed writers and artists of our time. The introduction is by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen : the book is a tribute to the consistent and diligent work of the ACLU in standing up for our rights.  It is a book to be savored and re-read, because the storytelling is that good.  They are about learning (re-learning) and living American values, of having empathy and respect for others, and trying by example to understand and discover hope while grappling with urgent live issues: hate, bigotry, racism, poverty, disenfranchisement, power. Thoroughly enjoyable and thought-provoking.
