I needed something lighter, I highly reccommend "Funny in Farsi" a memoir by Firoozeh Dumas.

I’m well over an hour into Jon Meacham’s book about John Lewis: “His Truth Is Marching On”.
It’s TERRIFIC! I am a big non-fiction fan, even though I often find them a bit dry. But this is so interesting!

I’m learning things I never knew about the baked-in racism of some areas of the South and how Lewis, even as a young man, made up his mind to make a difference. I’m also finding out interesting details about many other events including “sit-ins” and smaller demonstrations. It’s clear to me, even partly in, why Lewis is well—known for “get in trouble, GOOD trouble” quote. It’s was just part of him very early in his life.

It is filled with quotes, excellent descriptions of locations and situations and is an easy and entertaining—yet very factual—read. It also includes several photos that illustrate his descriptions.

Our daughter lives in Nashville, and she took us last year to the Parnassus Bookstore that carries many Meacham books since he’s on the Vandy faculty and is a local resident.
Now I’ll be able to tell her to gift me with ANY of Meacham’s books..I’m already a fan!

I haven't been posting in this thread even though I've been reading a lot this year. I ended up reading a book over the weekend that contained a sorority recruitment as part of one character's story. The book is called So Much a Part of You by Polly Dugan. The book is made up of connected stories, so each story could be read on its own, but if you read them all, the characters, plotlines and themes intersect in a cool way to tell a larger story.

The story that is sorority-related is called "Blackball," which yes, the title is pretty much a spoiler, but it's worth reading, either as a stand-alone story, or, preferably, part of the whole book.
