For the third week of Nonfiction November, Be/Ask/Become the Expert, I’m choosing to recommend three books on Universal Basic Income (UBI), a policy proposal advocated by progressives, libertarians, and neoliberals alike.
For this week of Nonfiction November I’ll be reading several books on Universal Basic Income, including Annie Lowrey’s Give People Money, as well as Dani Shapiro’s memoir on paternity, Inheritance.
Weekly updates and mini reviews of two memoirs: Kiese Laymon’s Heavy and Manal al-Sharif’s Daring to Drive.
For this week of Nonfiction November I’ll be pairing nonfiction titles with books nominated for National Book Awards, from Rebecca Makkai’s The Great Believers to Négar Djavadi’s Disoriental.
I’ll be kicking off Nonfiction November with a mix of memoirs, from Kiese Laymon’s Heavy to Francisco Cantú’s The Line Becomes a River.
This year I’ll be participating in Nonfiction November, a month-long challenge to read, write about, and discuss as much nonfiction as possible, with a themed discussion prompt posted at the start of each week.
