Instructors Summer Reading List

Updated: Aug 11, 2020

We encourage our students to read all summer. We have a 40 book challenge with a special party in the fall. Our instructors are reading too! Below is a short list:

Evicted: This is a heart wrenching story of poverty in Milwaukee. Nonfiction Pulitzer Prize winner but reads like a novel. It helps to illustrate how our city became one of the most segregated in the country. It should be on everyone’s must read list. Link:

The Body Keeps Score: Brain, Mind and Body in the Healing of Trauma: There’s lots of buzz right now about trauma – this is the authority. It’s not as easy a read as the other books listed here but worth the effort.

Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die: This one was on all the nonprofit reading lists even though it’s not about nonprofits specifically. It’s the best marketing book I’ve read. The authors make it fun. Link:

And finally because I’m visiting my new grandson: A is for Activist Link: Let’s start them young! He’s my editor today! We welcome your book recommendations too!
