Book:  Behind the Beautiful Forevers

Author: Katherine Boo

Summary:  Nonfiction.  Annawadi is a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport, and as India starts to prosper, Annawadians are electric with hope. Abdul, a reflective and enterprising Muslim teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Asha, a woman of formidable wit and deep scars from a childhood in rural poverty, has identified an alternate route to the middle class: political corruption. With a little luck, her sensitive, beautiful daughter – Annawadi’s “most-everything girl” – will soon become its first female college graduate.

Book:  Love, Norm: Dr. Norman D. Fintel on Equality & Courage in a World Calling for Change

Author:  Barbara Fintel Collins, Co-Founder of Dining for Women

Summary:  Memoir. This is the story of my father—a humble and courageous man who spent the final months of his life trying to save the world. It is also the story of how I discovered I was living his legacy. In 2003, I co-founded a global movement—Dining for Women—harnessing the collective action of people who share a vision of an equitable world for all. And it all began with Norm. At heart, Norm Fintel was a farmer and people were his crop. He dedicated his life to equality and the wellbeing of humankind. This book of his life lessons is for anyone searching for ways to spread the seeds of goodwill. Now, more than ever, we are in need of leaders who have moral integrity and embody selfless service, qualities that inspire, demonstrate, and teach the wisdom that transcends time, age, gender, and race.

Book:  In the Time of the Butterflies

Author:  Julia Alvarez

Summary: Historical fiction. Set during the waning days of the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic in 1960, this extraordinary novel tells the story of the Mirabal sisters, three young wives and mothers who are assassinated after visiting their jailed husbands.  From the author of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents comes this tale of courage and sisterhood set in the Dominican Republic during the rise of the Trujillo dictatorship. A skillful blend of fact and fiction, In the Time of the Butterflies is inspired by the true story of the three Mirabal sisters who, in 1960, were murdered for their part in an underground plot to overthrow the government. Alvarez breathes life into these historical figures–known as “las mariposas,” or “the butterflies,” in the underground–as she imagines their teenage years, their gradual involvement with the revolution, and their terror as their dissentience is uncovered.
