Time Magazine's 11 New Books to Read this March has some thought provoking selections from the memoir of a biracial teenager who finds support from a group of "fatherless girls" in Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls, by T. Kira Madden, to a collection of short stories that explores the idea of what makes a community in Lot Stories, by Bryan Washington.
If you are a parent of a biracial child, the book Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations, by Mira Jacob may appeal to you. The story is about how the author, answers her biracial son's questions about race, sexuality, gender, and more. Several of the books on the list deal with weighty issues such as loss, love, coming-of-age, and identity.
In the "read it before you see it" category is Daisy Jones & The Six, by Taylor Jenkins Reid. It is a look at the 70's band and what happened to them. The New York Times calls it the "fairly earnest portrait of the ’70s, though, a mockumentary without the mocking" in their book review. It is on their list of Most Anticipated Books of March 2019. Coming to Amazon Video, the story is being adapted into a 13 episode miniseries co-produced by Hello Sunshine (Reese Witherspoon's production company) and Amazon Studios.
