Getting to Ellen: A Memoir About Love, Honesty and Gender Change by Ellen (Ellie) Krug
What is the price of living an authentic life? Ellen Krug knows. Getting to Ellen details the “gender journey” taken by Ellen Krug, a woman born into a male body. As a man, “Ed” Krug seemingly had everything anyone could ever want. As this page-turning story of self-discovery unfolds, the reader understands that for Ed to live authentically as Ellen, much of that picture-perfect life would need to be sacrificed.*

The Loudest Duck: Moving Beyond Diversity While Embracing Differences to Achieve Success at Work by Laura A. Liswood
The Loudest Duck is a business fable that offers an alternate view of a multicultural workplace through the use of practical stories and cultural anecdotes. For instance, the Chinese teach their children, “The loudest duck gets shot,” a viewpoint that gets carried into adulthood, while many Americans are taught, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” As a result, you find two distinct ways of doing business, neither one being necessarily the right or better way.*

We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates
In these urgently relevant essays, the National Book Award-winning author of Between the World and Me reflects on race, Barack Obama’s presidency and its jarring aftermath, including the election of Donald Trump.*
