Liz’s Suggestions for April

1. Strangers in Their Own Land by Arlie Hochschild (a look into the Tea Party movement and the broader disenfranchisement of white lower/middle class Americans. Selected for April book club.)

2. Get in Trouble by Kelly Link (short stories, author speaking at Mission Creek Festival in IC this spring.)


3. Flash Boys by Michael Lewis (insight into Wall Street corruption, written by author of The Big Short.)
