“Istanbul, Turkey. Nice, France. Dallas, Texas. Baton Rouge, Louisiana.Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dhaka, Bangladesh. Orlando, Florida. Throw in Brexit and the toxic rhetoric surrounding the American presidential race, and it can feel as if intolerance and malice are lurking behind every corner.

The following books have always transported me out of dismal times, or at least helped me understand them better. I hope they do the same for you.”

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
