I finished listening to "Just Mercy" by Bryan Stevenson on audiobook. If I had a dollar for every time I gasped and wowed at the stories of Bryan's clients on death row, I would give a great sum to the Equal Justice Initiative, which Bryan established. The stories give further perspective on the societal factors that link to why death row inmates, in the case of this book, were falsely accused. Also, the incredible work Bryan has diligently achieved.
A bookmark has been placed in "Trauma & Recovery" by Dr. Judith Herman as my next read. This book has been on my reading list for a while to understand the aftermath people endure from traumatic and violent experiences. I'm eager to see what I can learn from this book.
"Electric Dreams" is still being worked through. I'm wrapping my mind around the characters and the worlds they are entering. I along with them. As one of my goals is to read more sci-fi this year, it's a newer genre for my reading tastes.
