Celebrate Every Day With Books
It seems like everyday has some new theme to celebrate so I thought it might be fun to see what kind of interesting books I can find (new, old, or coming soon) for an everyday holiday. Most days have more than one holiday!
MONDAY JANUARY 11TH 2020
HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS DAY!
“National Human Trafficking Awareness Day raises awareness about human trafficking and sexual slavery around the world and has the goal of ending slavery, giving people back their rights, and making the world a safer place for everyone to live. On June 22, 2007, the United States Senate designated January 11 as National Day of Human Trafficking Awareness, in an effort to raise awareness of and opposition to human trafficking. The Senate designated the day with the passing of a resolution but the House of Representatives never passed it, so it never became law..” (from checkiday.com)
So that you know, I have not read most of these. The ones I pick seem the most interesting and would like to read. You can probably find tons more books for each holiday but I am only going to pick two books for one holiday a day.
Let me know what you think. Do any of them seem interesting to you? Is there another book you think would be a better choice?
