#3QuickPicks with Azra Basic, adult services librarian at the Marmalade Branch, Salt Lake City Public Library. Check out (literally) Basic's picks on cancel culture:
The Short Life & Curious Death of Free Speech in America, Ellis Cose. "Free speech has long been one of American's most revered freedoms. Yet now, more than ever, free speech is reshaping America's social and political landscape even as it is coming under attack. Bestselling author and critically acclaimed journalist Ellis Cose wades into the debate to reveal how this Constitutional right has been coopted by the wealthy and politically corrupt. It is no coincidence that historically huge disparities in income have occurred at times when moneyed interests increasingly control political dialogue.
We Should All Be Feminists, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. "What does 'feminism' mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay--adapted from her much-viewed TEDx talk of the same name." Available in hard copy, ebook, audiobook, and in Spanish.
Free for You and Me: What Our First Amendment Means, Christy Mihaly. "It's a free country! But what does that mean? The five liberties protected by the First Amendment are explained here in catchy, engaging rhymes. Vivid, kid-friendly examples demonstrate the meaning of freedom of religion, speech, and the press, and the rights to assemble peacefully and to petition the government."
