Well, we're on the downhill side, now. Congratulations to everyone who's still hanging in there!
For this year’s A-Z Challenge, I have chosen to highlight some of the authors and their books, that we, in our book club, have either read, as a group, separately or have been recommended by someone in our facebook, Book Club, ‘What to Read Next?’
So, today 'O' is for Obama, Barack - Dreams from My Father
In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.
We, in our book club found this one to be a very interesting read. To come across a book written by the present, President of the United States was indeed a read, not to be passed up.
