Diversity Books

AAUW has published book lists devoted to diversity for several years. It is time to create a new list. Old lists are available on the web-site at www.aauw.org if you would like to know more. If you have read a wonderful book that deals with a group or disability and which would increase our understanding of others, please contact me at president@aauw-nys.org. Examples would be books dealing with growing up Hispanic, life with a visual impairment or an emotional disability, or life as a native American. There are many possibilities We are also looking for books that will increase our financial literacy and dealing with change in organizations such as AAUW.

Read any good books lately? Let me know.

I have a suggestion about books on financial literacy. There are tons out there for adults, but what about for kids. I like the new Millionaire Kids Club book series by kids and money expert Susan Beacham and respected financial journalist Lynnette Khalfani. The first two volumes are Garage Sale Riches and Putting the "Do" in Donate. Both end with a nice financial moral. You can't start too young to instill good money management skills!
