Ep. 3 Talking Books with Sarah Fong


On this week of The Stacks we are joined by Sarah Fong, a PhD Candidate in American Studies. Sarah is currently writing her dissertation on U.S. practices of social welfare, particularly as they relate to histories of slavery and colonization. This week we talk about the writing process, reading for work vs. reading for pleasure, and the power of books to teach us new things, and allow us to make changes in the world.

Get to know Sarah this week, before next week’s The Stacks Book Club conversation on Jesmyn Ward’s  Men We Reaped.

  1. I homeschool my boys and one of the books that we read for our curriculum was An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the US, young adult version. I thought it was a great source to give a different perspective on history. A good replacement for The Little House series is Prairie Lotus by Linda Sue Park. I’ve added many books to my TBR (many were already on there or I have read them 🙂 ).
