Pride: Celebrating Diversity & CommunityPride: Celebrating Diversity & Community by Robin Stevenson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a great nonfiction book to introduce teens and preteens (and rather ignorant adults like myself) about what all the fuss is with Pride celebrations. It talks about the Stonewall riots and early discriminations towards the LGBT community. With full color photos throughout, it also shows Pride festivities or demonstrations from around the world- and shows how much work still needs to be done. A helpful section was the explanations of the QUILTBAG of identities. It’s incredible to read how far we’ve come and know there’s still a long way to go.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I stumbled upon this while browsing a new comic books store. I’m a big fan of Agatha Christie but didn’t really know much about her life. This was a quick overview of that with her major disappearance as the center point. Fun for fans are when her characters make appearances. Enjoyable.

    Agatha looks great. I, too, know almost nothing about her life despite reading many of her books.
