What We're All About

Revolution Books is NOT about learning to survive on increasingly shrinking ground, accepting the status quo... a relic of a bygone age. It is about contributing to a new atmosphere of critical engagement, putting revolution back into the conversation...

Quote of the Week basics
from Bob Avakian

 "No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

Bob Avakian
Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA

    Revolution Books Club

    The book club discussion of "Redefining Realness" and the film screening of "Terra Ferma" has been rescheduled for the 2nd week of July: Sunday, July 10.   The book discussion will be at 1pm; the film screening at 3pm.  

     

    The following books will be discussed at our upcoming meetings of the  Revolution Books Club.  These discussions are always lively and we dig in deeply.   The only requirement is that you've read at least a substantial portion of the book we're discussing and that you have respect for differing opinions.

    "Redefining Realness - My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More"
    by Janet Mock

    Janet Mock is a voice for the transgender community.  In this autobiography she talks about her experiences in growing up in Hawai`i, being multiracial (Hawaiian and African American), poor, and trans.  Her story is raw, honest, sad and funny, and should be read and discussed broadly.  If you haven't yet read "Redefining Realness,", it's a fast read.  The book is available at Revolution Books, as well as the library.  Janet has written for many magazines and has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, and NPR..  Her advocacy has earned her honors from the Feminist Press, GLSEN, and Planned Parenthood.  This Farrington grad has a whole lot to say!  For example, Check out this review of the film "Aloha" by Cameron Crowe.

    Homegoing, by Ya Gyasi

    This soon-to-be-released novel is going to take longer to read, but there's some lead time.  It's an epic family saga spanning 300 years in Ghana.  Quoting Ta Nehisi's Coates' review of the book, "I  think I needed to read a book like this to remember what is possible.  I think I needed to remember what happens when you pair a gifted literary mind to an epic task.  Homegoing is an inspiration." 

    "Gyasi echoes [James]Baldwin's undertanding of a common culture marked by both yearning nd pain, in which black people can confront each other across differences and reach a political understanding about what unites them.  What distinguishes Gyasi's presentation of this idea is its scope:  She does not present us with a single moment, but rather delivers a multigenerational saga in which two branches of a family, separated by slavery and time, emerge from the murk of history in a romantic embrace...."  Amitava Kumar, Bookforum Me

    The novel is scheduled for release on June 7 and we'll have it in the store by the end of this week.
