Raising My Rainbow by Lori Duron Book Summary:

Raising My Rainbow is Lori Duron’s frank, heartfelt, and brutally funny account of her and her family's adventures of distress and happiness raising a gender-creative son. Whereas her older son, Chase, is a Lego-loving, sports-playing boy's boy, Lori's younger son, C.J., would much rather twirl around in a pink sparkly tutu, with a Disney Princess in each hand while singing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi." C.J. is gender variant or gender nonconforming, whichever you prefer. Whatever the term, Lori has a boy who likes girl stuff—really likes girl stuff. He floats on the gender-variation spectrum from super-macho-masculine on the left all the way to super-girly-feminine on the right. He's not all pink and not all blue. He's a muddled mess or a rainbow creation. Lori and her family choose to see the rainbow. Written in Lori's uniquely witty and warm voice and launched by her incredibly popular blog of the same name, Raising My Rainbow is the unforgettable story of her wonderful family as they navigate the often challenging but never dull privilege of raising a slightly effeminate, possibly gay, totally fabulous son. Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content

Erik the Red Sees Green by Julie Anderson,David Lopez Book Summary:

Exuberant redhead Erik always tries his best, but he just can’t understand why he’s missing homework questions at school and messing up at soccer practice. Then one day in art class everyone notices that Erik’s painted a picture of himself with green hair! It turns out he’s not just creative, he’s color blind, too. Color blindness, also known as Color Vision Deficiency (CVD), affects a significant percentage of the population. The tendency to color-code learning materials in classrooms can make it especially hard for kids with CVD. But once Erik is diagnosed, he and his parents, teachers, coach, and classmates figure out solutions that work with his unique way of seeing, and soon he’s back on track.

Colorblind: A Story of Racism by Johnathan Harris Book Summary:

Johnathan, a fifteen-year-old African American from Long Beach, California, shares his story of being physically and verbally harassed because of his race, and of overcoming the discrimination to embrace all cultures, and then to be proud of his own. Colorblind: A Story of Racism is the third in a series of graphic novels written by young adults for their peers. Johnathan Harris is fifteen, and lives in Long Beach, California, where he loves playing soccer with his friends, and listening to their favorite rapper, Snoop Dogg, a Long Beach native. His mom, dad, and three brothers are tight, but one of the most influential family members for Johnathan is his Uncle Russell, a convict in prison, serving fifteen years to life . . . Uncle Russell taught Johnathan from a very young age to see people from the perspective of their cultures, and not just their skin color. He imbued a pride of his ancestry and cautioned against letting hatred into his heart. But when Johnathan was just eight years old, something happened that filled him with fear and the very hatred that Uncle Russell had warned him about. What happened to Johnathan made him see that a dream of a colorless world was just that. A dream. That event shook him to his core. Anger grew inside him like a hot coal. Uncle Russell had told him to “throw it away or you will get burned,” but Johnathan was young and frightened. He was having a hard time forgiving, much less forgetting. Colorblind is Johnathan’s story of confronting his own racism and overcoming it. It is a story of hope and optimism that all, young and old, should heed. Zuiker Press is proud to publish stories about important current topics for kids and adolescents, written by their peers, that will help them cope with the challenges they face in today’s troubled world.

Color Blind by Tom Dunkel Book Summary:

A 2013 CASEY Award Finalist for Best Baseball Book of the Year When baseball swept America in the years after the Civil War, independent, semipro, and municipal leagues sprouted up everywhere. With civic pride on the line, rivalries were fierce and teams often signed ringers to play alongside the town dentist, insurance salesman, and teen prodigy. In drought-stricken Bismarck, North Dakota during the Great Depression, one of the most improbable teams in the history of baseball was assembled by one of the sport’s most unlikely champions. A decade before Jackie Robinson broke into the Major Leagues, car dealer Neil Churchill signed the best players he could find, regardless of race, and fielded an integrated squad that took on all comers in spectacular fashion. Color Blind immerses the reader in the wild and wonderful world of early independent baseball, with its tough competition and its novelty. Dunkel traces the rise of the Bismarck squad, focusing on the 1935 season and the first National Semipro Tournament. This is an entertaining, must-read for anyone interested in the history of baseball. “A tale as fantastic as it is true.”—Boston Globe

The Grammar of Graphics by Leland Wilkinson Book Summary:

Written for statisticians, computer scientists, geographers, research and applied scientists, and others interested in visualizing data, this book presents a unique foundation for producing almost every quantitative graphic found in scientific journals, newspapers, statistical packages, and data visualization systems. It was designed for a distributed computing environment, with special attention given to conserving computer code and system resources. While the tangible result of this work is a Java production graphics library, the text focuses on the deep structures involved in producing quantitative graphics from data. It investigates the rules that underlie pie charts, bar charts, scatterplots, function plots, maps, mosaics, and radar charts. These rules are abstracted from the work of Bertin, Cleveland, Kosslyn, MacEachren, Pinker, Tufte, Tukey, Tobler, and other theorists of quantitative graphics.

Color Blind 101 by HowExpert,Kim Springer Book Summary:

Are you color blind? Do you struggle with everyday color decisions that affect your home, work, relationships, and self-esteem? Maybe it seems like no one else understands your plight…or perhaps you are ready to shirk this unfair disadvantage in life. I understand… This book is written for you- the color blind person who knows what it is like to be the only person who cannot identify a colorful number in a small circle. However, you are not alone. Not only do I endure this hardship, hundreds of millions of people worldwide live with our misunderstood, somewhat rare genetic condition. Although your situation may seem bleak if you are facing discrimination, disappointment, or displacement due to your condition, this book is written as a helpful guide and uplifting reminder that color blindness does not have the final say – you do! Do you feel like you have been living life without the playbook? Or perhaps you have not considered how your color blindness manifests in your life. Is there a friend, family member, neighbor, or teacher, who would benefit from understanding color blindness? This “How To” book addresses color blind individuals and everyone who crosses their paths with uplifting, quick, and entertaining tips to help navigate and comprehend the color blind life. With firsthand accounts and colloquial knowhow, I have written this book so anyone can understand the basics of color blindness – from how it is inherited to its effects on everyday life. Plus, the color blind individual or caretaker thereof, will appreciate the applicable tips, such as how to shop and cook for the color blind. How did I end up with a freezer full of “purpleberries?” Why didn’t my bridal shower outfit match? Is it okay that I ask my kids for fashion advice? If you can relate to these questions or I have piqued your curiosity, read and laugh along with me as we celebrate and commiserate with the wonderful world of the color blind. About the Expert With blue eyes and brown hair, your color blind author, Kimberly Springer, lives in the suburbs of Pittsburgh with her hazel-eyed husband, green-eyed oldest son, brown-eyed middle son, and blue-eyed little girl. Her tri-colored, purebred Basset Hound provides the perfect sidekick for calm days of writing, piano playing, and cooking. Despite her obvious inability to view every Fall color, Autumn remains Kim’s favorite season due to the smoky air from fires, sundry warm beverages, scratchy hayrides, and flavorful Thanksgiving feasts. On a more professional note, Kim hails from a diverse background of experience. You could describe her as quite the Philly Phanatic, born and raised just outside the city of brotherly love. Remaining loyal to her state, she attended The Pennsylvania State University in State College to study secondary education, specializing in English, communications, and journalism. As a Freshman, Kim wrote for the far-reaching Daily Collegian as a Senior reporter, followed by a stint as a Health and Wellness journalist.

There she met her husband of 10 years and graduated magna cum laude. Wielding both a teaching and marriage certificate, Kim entered the married and working world at a young age. As an educator, she has taught grades 7-12 in a variety of school-settings, including the acclaimed Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in Midland, PA. Nowadays, she devotes her time to her family, home, church, piano students, and online writing. She believes in the power of everyday communication and education through online forums, community gatherings, and outreach activities to enhance the lives of all peoples.

The issues that make monogamous dating daunting for people of color—shaming and exclusion by white partners, being fetishized, having realities of everyday racism ignored—occur in polyamorous relationships too, and trying "not to see race" only makes it worse. To make polyamorous communities inclusive, we must all acknowledge our part in perpetuating racism and listen to people of color. Love's Not Color Blind puts forward the framework—through research, anecdotal testimony, and analogy—for understanding, identifying, and confronting racism within polyamorous communities.

Her mother was a professional cheerleader, her father is a retired NBA legend, her big sister is the new face of the oh-so-glamorous Laker Girls, and her grandmother was the first black cheerleader ever on Valentine Middle School's HoneyBee cheer squad.

Grace Like Scarlett by Adriel Booker Book Summary:

Though one in four pregnancies ends in loss, miscarriage is shrouded in such secrecy and stigma that the woman who experiences it often feels deeply isolated, unsure how to process her grief. Her body seems to have betrayed her. Her confidence in the goodness of God is rattled. Her loved ones don't know what to say. Her heart is broken. She may feel guilty, ashamed, angry, depressed, confused, or alone. With vulnerability and tenderness, Adriel Booker shares her own experience of three consecutive miscarriages, as well as the stories of others. She tackles complex questions about faith and suffering with sensitivity and clarity, inviting women to a place of grace, honesty, and hope in the redemptive purposes of God without offering religious clichés and pat answers. She also shares specific, practical resources, such as ways to help guide children through grief, suggestions for memorializing your baby, and advice on pregnancy after loss, as well as a special section for dads and loved ones.

Colorblind Racism by Meghan Burke Book Summary:

How can colorblindness – the idea that race does not matter – be racist? This illuminating book introduces the paradox of colorblind racism: how dismissing or downplaying the realities of race and racism can perpetuate inequality and violence. Drawing on a range of theoretical approaches and real-life examples, Meghan Burke reveals colorblind racism to be an insidious presence in many areas of institutional and everyday life in the United States. She explains what is meant by colorblind racism, uncovers its role in the history of racial discrimination, and explores its effects on how we talk about and treat race today. The book also engages with recent critiques of colorblind racism to show the limitations of this framework and how a deeper, more careful study of colorblindness is needed to understand the persistence of racism and how it may be challenged. This accessible book will be an invaluable overview of a key phenomenon for students across the social sciences, and its far-reaching insights will appeal to all interested in the social life of race and racism.
