When They Call You a Terrorist is the essential audiobook for every conscientious American. From one of the cofounders of the Black Lives Matter movement comes a poetic audiobook memoir and reflection on humanity. Necessary and timely, Patrisse Cullors' story asks us to remember that protest in the interest of the most vulnerable comes from love.

Any additional comments?

The memoir was so personal yet so universal. At times it was painful to listen to the pain, suffering and injustice heaped on this family and community. But it was impossible to stop listening in the hopes of wanting, needing to learn more and be part of the solution. This story if full of truth, yet it inspires hope.

Cyril Avery is not a real Avery - or at least that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead.

I hated for it to end. Loved the balance of the depth and seriousness of the subject woven with emotion and humor. Lovely listen!!

Nearly a half century into being a feminist and legal pioneer, something funny happened to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The octogenarian won the Internet. Across America, people who weren't even born when Ginsburg made her name are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.

Hard to go wrong with such a great subject. Friendly, approachable, enjoyable in tone makes a serious subject ease to listen.
