Two interesting and completely different nonfiction books came my way last week. What books came into your house?
Beginner's Luck: Dispatches from the Klamath Mountains by Malcolm Terence. In the 1960s, Terence helped found the Black Bear Ranch commune near the California-Oregon border, as he has now chronicled in his "rollicking new memoir."
PORTLAND EVENT: Malcolm Terence will be reading and signing Beginner's Luck at Powell's City of Books in downtown Portland on Monday, June 25, 2018, at 7:30 p.m.
Pay to Play: Sexual Harassment American Style by Tootie Smith. A timely book offering real life solutions to the problem of sexual harassment.

Now those seem vastly different books. Both interesting. Happy Reading!ReplyDelete
Beginners luck seems like a good one!ReplyDelete
Ooooh, Pay to Play seems very timely indeed!! No new non-fiction in my household this week, but I did (finally!) find a gorgeous edition of Doris Lessing's The Golden Notebook in my favourite secondhand bookstore. I'd been looking for it for ages! Can't wait to dive in! :)ReplyDelete
