You are required to read three books and write a book review. The content of the reviews should focus entirely on what you learned about other cultures/people/social identities and yourself through reading the book. Don’t try to provide and overview of the content of the book. I am most interested in what impacted you, how it impacted you and why you think it impacted you). Who you might give it to as a gift. At least write 2 pages for each book and the total pages is not less than 6 (not include the front page and reference).
