Such a Fun Age | Kiley Reid | Book of the Month | April 2020

Such A Fun Age takes you on a journey through various themes such as white privilege, deep-rooted bias', systemic prejudice, the saviour complex, superiority, inter-racial dating, parenthood and more.

Definitely a book that makes you reflect on your experiences and a great conversation generator.

Highly recommend! The gals had a great time discussing this one at the @aboriginalbookclub.

Goodreads says:

In the midst of a family crisis one late evening, white blogger Alix Chamberlain calls her African American babysitter, Emira, asking her to take toddler Briar to the local market for distraction. There, the security guard accuses Emira of kidnapping Briar, and Alix's efforts to right the situation turn out to be good intentions selfishly mismanaged.

I pay my respects to the traditional custodians of the Wiradjuri nation including all Elders, both past and present, of the land where Little Black Duck Aus is based. Without the resilience and courage of my ancestors, I would not be where I am today.
