Race, Love, the Wild West, and becoming a Badass–dive into this week’s nonfiction round-up!

BROWN WHITE BLACK: An American Family at the Intersection of Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Religion by Nishta J. Mehra
Two starred reviews!
“Mehra’s nuanced and thought-provoking work resonates on multiple levels—from the immigrant experience and race relations to accepting one’s sexuality, adoption, parenthood, and more. Excellent for readers interested in family and issues of identity in America.”–Library Journal, starred review

HARD TO LOVE: Essays and Confessions by Briallen Hopper
“Whether she is writing about her fraught decision to become pregnant with donated sperm, a friend’s bout with cancer, baking (‘a code for conveying care safely without the ambiguity of words’), the collective energy of the Women’s March, or a visit to the Foundling Museum, Hopper’s essays seem like love songs, as well: delicate, thoughtful elegies to friendship, compassion, and grace. A fresh, well-crafted collection.”--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

WILD BILL: The True Story of the American Frontier’s First Gunfighter by Tom Clavin
“A vigorous yarn concerning the man who, by Clavin’s (DODGE CITY) account, set the template for the Wild West gunslinger…. Good history accessibly and ably told.” —Kirkus Reviews

THE WARRIOR CODE: 11 Principles to Unleash the Badass Inside of You by Tee Marie Hanible with Denene Millner
“Hanible’s practical, no-nonsense advice and her candidness about both her missteps and all she’s endured and conquered make her an impressive role model and guide for women and men of all ages who are navigating challenges in their lives.”–Booklist
