This book was never in my high school curriculum, but so glad I decided to pick it up as an adult. Amazing. The Grapes of Wrath (20th Century Classics)

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck - eBook edition - #classic #books #ebooks #75years
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I would put this on the reading list of every politician.
5 stars - I have to thank a teacher for this one. This is NOT a new read, but the story still sticks with me decades later. Definitely worth reading.
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. I read this book as a junior in high school in Sandy, UT. Who knew I would end up living in the Central Valley during the latter part of my undergraduate career and for a year after that? Emotional story that shows how the Great Depression and Dust Bowl really affected people. More powerful than a history textbook! If you haven't been to the John Steinbeck museum, I strongly recommend it.
Light vacation reading, but also meaningful.

Escape from Camp 14: One man's remarkable odyssey from North Korea to freedom in the West.
The only man born in a North Korean prison camp known to have escaped tells his story.
Might be an interesting read
Escaping slavery; North Korea.
The shocking story of one of the few people born in a North Korean political prison to have escaped and survived.
The best of our North Korean book jag. I highly recommend this book to anyone interesting in what it is to be human.
