What’s On Our Summer Reading List? Aggie Mendoza, English Professor

Here is one of my favourite novels. Cry the Beloved Country  by Alan Paton. I recommend it because it draws parallelisms to the social and racial injustices during and after slavery in America. It is a powerful novel which precedes apartheid and speaks about the heart break and sorrows experienced by  two fathers, one black and one white.
