June has got to be one of our favorite months of the year. We love summer! There’s nothing better than sitting pool side (or beach side) armed with a cold drink and good book. This month we’re asking you to diversify your reading. Hopefully you’ve been doing that all year long and are ready to dive in even further now…
Diversify Your Reading
“Read a book with a character (or written by an author) of a race, religion, or sexual orientation other than your own or read about a culture you want to learn more about.”

My choice this month is a book of short stories – all written by authors from diverse backgrounds – A People’s Future of the United States – edited by Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams.
A People’s Future of the United States presents twenty-five never-before-published stories by a diverse group of writers, featuring voices both new and well-established. These stories imagine their characters fighting everything from government surveillance, to corporate cities, to climate change disasters, to nuclear wars. But fear not: A People’s Future also invites readers into visionary futures in which the country is shaped by justice, equity, and joy.
Edited by Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams, this collection features a glittering landscape of moving, visionary stories written from the perspective of people of color, indigenous writers, women, queer & trans people, Muslims and other people whose lives are often at risk.
