Operation Mom: A Book Review

As first posted on feministbookclub.com Operation Mom: My Plan to Get My Mom a Life… and a Man by Reenita M. Hora took me by surprise.

Black Skinhead: Book Review

Going into Black Skinhead: Reflections on Blackness and Our Political Future by Brandi Collins-Dexter, I already knew there was such a thing as Black Republicans.

Should Books Have Content Warnings?

As first posted on feministbookclub.com I recently read my first book with a content warning featured at the beginning. We Weren’t Looking to be Found by Stephanie Kuehn most definitely needed one; it was filled with some gnarly depictions. Another book I have been reading (forever) that has content warnings is Postcolonial Astrology by Alice Sparkly Kat. This bookContinue reading “Should Books Have Content Warnings?”
