16 Reading with Patrick, a True Story: A Teacher, A Student and the Life-Changing Power of Books
Kuo, Michelle Macmillan 2017 1447286073 / 9781447286073 First UK Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New hardback with dust jacket. RRP 16.99. First impression, UK edition. As a young English teacher keen to make a difference in the world, Michelle Kuo took a job at a tough school in the Mississippi Delta, sharing books and poetry with a young African-American teenager named Patrick and his classmates. For the first time, these kids began to engage with ideas and dreams beyond their small town, and to gain an insight into themselves that they had never had before. Two years later, Michelle left to go to law school; but Patrick began to lose his way, ending up jailed for murder. And that's when Michelle decided that her work was not done, and began to visit Patrick once a week, and soon every day, to read with him again. Reading with Patrick is an inspirational story of friendship, a coming-of-age story for both a young teacher and a student, an expansive, deeply resonant meditation on education, race and justice, and a love letter to literature and its power to transcend social barriers. pp. xxi, 296. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 306875

12 Picture Cape Town : Landmarks of a New Generation

In the process they have produced some compelling images, some disturbing ones, and others which are intensely personal.
