Nonfiction November: Week 2

Nonfiction November is hosted by Katie of Doing Dewey, Julz of Julz Reads, Rennie of What’s Nonfiction, and Leann of Shelf Aware

Week 2: (Nov. 9 to 13) – Book Pairing (Julz of Julz Reads): This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.

I've decided to do a few pairings (yeah, I know, I didn't really pair) based on the theme of Antiracism. If you, like many in this country, are working through your own understandings of racism, white supremacy, antiracism, etc, try reading some of the novels and nonfiction below.
