21 Books for Woke Kids: Critical Linking, September 8

Sponsored by Copycat by Alex Lake.

How do you help your children make sense of all this? How do we raise a generation of kids to be better humans than our current leaders are proving themselves to be? I try to live by a “Teach your children well” mindset, but man, it’s tough to parent from the fetal position, which is where I end up after reading the headlines. Where do I even begin?

21 books for teaching your children how to not be awful people, basically.

Academy Award-winning actor Casey Affleck will play the title role in a film adaptation of “Stoner,” the “greatest American novel you’ve never heard of,” by John Williams, published in 1965.

Deadline reports that Affleck will star as the protagonist, William Stoner, a farm boy who discovers he’s in love with literature while attending the University of Missouri and later becomes a professor stuck in a troubled marriage.

How sad that I can’t watch the adaptation of an excellent book because it’s starring a sexual predator.
