American Dirt Controversy

I am halfway done with American Dirt and I think it is well researched, sure, there is a gringo vibe to it, but I sort of expected it...

I had NO idea how bad was the backlash, the author had to cancel the book tour!

A lot of blame goes to the publishers more than to the author really.

GBH News

Al Jazeera The Stream <- this one is feisty!

The Book Doctors (drives you crazy with the two 'doctors' speaking at once, but good points)

Oprah getting it!

Is Frau Kitty trying to censor the book too?

And I actually started with the author at Politics and Prose, a great YouTube channel, this is Jeanine Cummins herself on the book, her other books, etc.

I feel bad for the Latinx authors, but also for Jeanine Cummins! I think she really cares for immigrants, her webpage has resources to help them, and sadly, maybe the story had to be taken by a white lady to get more attention... so much to consider, but I am enjoying the book and of course will finish it!
