Last month we presented a special summer reading challenge, asking for recommendations of books and movies with an international context. Thanks to all those who contributed, and congratulations to our winners! Ashley from New Braunfels, TX suggested two books about Asia–Reading Lolita in Tehran (Iran) and Kite Runner (Afghanistan). Maggie of Litchfield Park, AZ posted the first submission for Europe with the book Round Ireland with a Fridge. And Kevin of Slinger, WI told us about an Australian classic: Daisy Bates in the Desert: A Woman’s Life among the Aborigines. Ashley, Maggie, and Kevin will each be receiving a My Wonderful World "We are Not Alone" poster in the mail. Be sure to check out these great reads during the dog days of summer!
Want to win a poster of your own? We’re still looking for submissions relating to the continents of South America, Antarctica, and Africa. So tell us: what are your favorite books and movies?
