April 2024 Diverse Reads:

1. Faebound by Saara El-Arifi (Ghanian-Sudanese) - Arab-American Heritage Month

Two elven sisters become imprisoned in the intoxicating world of the fae, where danger and love lie in wait. Faebound is the first book in an enchanting new trilogy from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Final Strife.

Yeeran was born on the battlefield, has lived on the battlefield, and one day, she knows, she'll die on the battlefield.

As a warrior in the elven army, Yeeran has known nothing but violence her whole life. Her sister, Lettle, is trying to make a living as a diviner, seeking prophecies of a better future.

When a fatal mistake leads to Yeeran’s exile from the Elven Lands, both sisters are forced into the terrifying wilderness beyond their borders.

There they encounter the impossible: the fae court. The fae haven’t been seen for a millennium. But now Yeeran and Lettle are thrust into their seductive world, torn among their loyalties to each other, their elven homeland, and their hearts.

2. The 5 Resets: Rewire Your Brain and Body for Less Stress and More Resilience byDr. Aditi Nerurkar M.D. (Indian) - Stress Awareness Month

Discover how to rethink your relationship with stress and overcome burnout, depression, and anxiety with this accessible health-meets-self-help guide.

Drawing on years of experience as a renowned Harvard doctor and nationally recognized stress expert, Dr. Aditi Nerurkar has developed a science-backed approach to help us change our relationship with everyday stress. In her anticipated debut, Dr. Nerurkar offers both a mindset shift about stress and her simple yet powerful five resets—pillars of wisdom that bring together physiological and psychological coping skills and enable you to cope when things get hard.

For Dr. Nerurkar, the first step toward a healthier mind and body is overcoming a common misperception about stress: that it’s “bad.” Stress is actually good for us, she argues, because it is a driving biological force and an adaptive response to life’s many demands. We run into problems, however, when our stress is maladaptive and out of tune with the frequency of our lives, manifesting in burnout, fatigue, meltdowns, and depression. To keep stress at healthy levels, Dr. Nerurkar offers her five science-backed resets to help us in our challenging moments:

  • Get Clear on What Matters Most
  • Find Quiet in a Noisy World
  • Sync Your Brain and Your Body
  • Come Up for Air
  • Bring Your Best Self Forward

Like any good doctor, she prescribes real solutions. Some of her bite-size techniques include adopting the rule of two (because research shows that making more than two large decisions at a time is overwhelming), rejecting the myth of multitasking (it just doesn’t work!) and experimenting with her Bookend Method (find a ritual to start and end each workday to create boundaries between your professional life and everything else).

With these small, smart adjustments, we can change our relationship with stress, nurture our mental health, and live better every day.

3. Oh Witness Dey! Poems byShani Mootoo (Trinidadian) - Poetry Month

Shani Mootoo’s great-great-grandparents were brought to Trinidad as indentured labourers by the British. There is no record of where they were from in India or whether it was kidnapping, trickery, or false promises of wealth that took them to the Caribbean.

In Oh Witness Dey! Mootoo expands the question of origins, from ancestry percentages and journey narratives, through memory, story, and lyric fragments. These vibrant poems transcend the tropes of colonial violence through saints and spices, rebellion and joy, to reimagine tensions and solidarities among various diasporas. They circumvent traditional conventions of style to find new routes toward understanding. They invite the reader to witness history, displacements, and the legacies of our inheritance.
