November Book List - History

November includes a number of important dates (Day of the Dead, Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving, to name a few), which is why our theme is HISTORY. When we discuss historical events, it’s important to let many different voices contribute to the conversation. This list includes stories from various points in our past and can raise important questions on how we talk and write about history.
