Books to Celebrate Independence
As an independent bookshop, we are always excited to celebrate independence. This July 4th, we celebrate our nation's independence. I think it's a good time to reflect on what it means to be a good citizen of our country. It is also a good time to share stories of people who have worked hard for our country with our children.
Without getting on my personal soapbox (well, maybe just one foot), I am a first generation American. My father's family immigrated here looking for a better life. They came in 1930, when jobs were scarce. But still they came, and I think they made Texas a better place. They became American citizens when they could. And they never took the liberties afforded them and their descendants lightly. I do not take my citizenship lightly. So let's celebrate and make our work count.
Below are a few of the books I've been thinking about this week. If you happen to pick one up, I'd love to hear what you think.
Wishing you a happy and safe 4th,
