New Books This Week (June 4th, 2018)

How I Resist, by Maureen Johnson.How I Resist: Activism and Hope for a New Generation, edited by Maureen Johnson.
Wednesday Books, 2018.

“Stand up and speak out!

“Now, more than ever, young people are motivated to make a difference in a world they’re bound to inherit. But with much to stand up and shout about, where do they begin?

How I Resist is the way to start the conversation. An all-star collection of essays, songs, illustrations, and interviews about activism and hope, How I Resist features personal, sometimes funny, often irreverent, always instructive stories that will inspire reflection—and action.

“This guide will remind you that you are not helpless, and that you can be the change you wish to see in the world, in the news, and for your future.” From the publisher.
