“I tell my students, 'When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.” ― Toni Morrison ❤️🤗 . . . . . . .

The Island of Sea Women By Lisa See . Who are the Haenyeo? What they do, where is Jeju Island? You’ll get these answers from this book. . If anything, read this book to know about the Haenyeo women. The proud, strong women, and frankly role models according to me of Jeju Island in South Korea who dive into the sea to gather food to support their family, who teach their children to continue this tradition while respecting the sea, and who work with other women as a unit. . Read this book to know how friendships are made, how friendship can be affected by something held onto for years and years and that there are ALWAYS two sides to each story. . If it’s not obvious from above, I want you to read this book 😀. . Happy Wednesday friends! I can’t believe it’s already the second week of August. Where is summer going? ☹️ How has August been so far for you? If you read this book, let me know please !! . . . . . . . . . . #bookreview #library #librarybooks #kcls #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookworm #igreads #bookphotograph #books #readersofinstagram #beautifulbooks #theislandofseawomen #lisasee

"Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge." ― Toni Morrison ✊🏾❤️📚 . . . . . . . [image description: A black & white close up of Toni Morrison, she faces forward but her eyes look at something farther away. Her shoulder length hair is reminiscent of an 80's blow out . She looks stylish in gold hoop earrings, a black suit coat, white shirt, and a long, loose, black ascot. Her weight is leaning to her left as she rests on her elbow, questioningly, her hand poised in the air.] #kcls #kentwa #tonimorrison #author #writer #reader #poet #BlackWomen #BlackWriters #Beloved #TheBluestEye #BlackAuthors #BlackPoets #africanamericanauthor

"You do not deserve love regardless of the suffering you have endured. You do not deserve love because somebody did you wrong. You do not deserve love just because you want it. You can only earn—by practice and careful contemplations—the right to express it and you have to learn how to accept it." ― Toni Morrison ❤️ . . . . . . . [image description: A close up of Toni Morrison, her head turned 1/4 away but her eyes look straight at the viewer. She has dark brown eyes, brown skin, and red lipstick on that matches the red and grey cloth that holds her grey hair back; her hair is in tiny tree braids. She has on large gold hoops earrings and a long necklace of oblong ivory beads. She's wearing a dark black shirt. One corner of her mouth is pulled back in the knowing smirk of a strong, accomplished, inspiring Black woman.] #kcls #kentwa #tonimorrison #author #writer #reader #poet #BlackWomen #BlackWriters #Beloved #TheBluestEye #BlackAuthors #BlackPoets #africanamericanauthor #love

Toni Morrison was an influential force in literature and the black experience. Nobel Laureate, Pulitzer Prize winner, author, professor, mother, and a revolutionary black woman. ✊🏾❤️ She will be sorely missed. We can still find solace in her many works of nonfiction, adult fiction, and children's books. Never forget this amazing writer who could fly with her words. 📚

This striking, one-of-a-kind graphic novel captures the story of a life without ever using words. It is the story of a boy who dreams of being an astronaut and the man he becomes. It is told completely through two page spreads of scenes the main character experienced or observed. It's hard to describe and impossible to forget. If you love art and storytelling give this one a try! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #NobrowPress #tomhaugomat #throughalife #graphicnovel #Bookstagram #kcls #NASA #astronauts #wordless

#stepsister was lackluster. I have a background in folklore and love retellings and reimaginings, especially if they play to the darker nature of the original #marchen but this one just didn't push hard enough. Perhaps I'm too old and expecting too much from #ya (lots of respect for YA! But I find that sometimes the books stay a little too light for my taste). .

Binge read an essay collection by Pulitzer Prize winning culture critic @emilynussbaum and look at your favorite television shows in a whole new way. I Like to Watch celebrates series from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Adventure Time. Nussbaum also explores difficult topics like sexual violence on tv and wrestles with questions of what do when an artist you love is revealed to be a monster in the #MeToo era. More than just reviews, this book offers smart, funny, insightful critiques while exploring cultural phenomenons like fandom and expanding the definition of “prestige television.” #bookstagram #kcls

"The Mother-in-law" is a victim of misleading marketing. I picked up this book because it was marketed as a thriller. It's not. I would have liked it more had I gone in knowing it's more of a family drama without any real peril or whodunit element (despite starting with a death!). It's well-written, I just thought I was getting (and was in the mood for) something else. . Has marketing ever lead you to feel disappointed in a book? . #brynandbooks #cats #catsofinstagram #booksandcats #books #reading #currentlyreading #librarylove #kcls #bookstagram #themotherinlaw #sallyhepworth
