Read This, Then That: Some 1970s Social Justice

June 8, 2016

Both books in this month's Read This, Then That take us back to the 1970s to look at women's rights and social justice issues. While both titles are very obviously set in the 70s (no cell phones or Facebook in these books), they each could very easily have been set today as many of the issues they touch on are still being discussed now. While different in style, readers will be left with a lot to ponder and feelings of satisfaction after a reading two stories well told. Check out some of the similarities and differences of Night Ambulance and Middenrammers below.
