Summer of ’85

**

Chris Morrow (Author), Kevin Hart (Author, Narrator), Charlamagne Tha God (Author)
Add it to your library**

Welcome to the summer of 1985 in Philadelphia, when the city was rocked—in almost every sense of the word—by two unprecedented events: Mayor W. Wilson Goode’s May 13 decision to bomb the headquarters of MOVE, a controversial Philadelphia-based radical communal organization, and the July 13 Live Aid concert, where international rock royalty convened in Philly to raise money for victims of the Ethiopian famine. Separated by just two months and eight miles, these events would showcase both the best and the worst of the so-called City of Brotherly Love: One would raise millions of dollars for famine victims in Africa, while the other would lead to the death of 11 members of MOVE, including five children, who had all taken the last name of their leader, John Africa. The bombing led to a fire that was allowed to burn for hours, resulting in the destruction of a middle-class African American neighborhood. Those wounds remain raw more than 35 years later.

Homecoming: A Memoir

Eddie Huang (Author, Narrator)
Add it to your library**

When Eddie Huang found out Tom Hanks had COVID, he made a split-second decision to cop a flight to Taipei. It was in the thick of the pandemic, before we had much information at all besides to mummify ourselves and cry in a corner of our bedrooms listening to James Blake if we wanted to survive. All Eddie wanted was to get in his room, order room service, and enter a 30-day dumpling coma—after which, he figured, this whole thing would be over. Eddie didn’t think twice about throwing his social life away when his life was threatened. He’d never really felt at home in the US, and he’d always told himself that he’d try Taiwan if America ever became too much—mainly because his father’s best stories had taken place there. At first, he just ate mushroom chocolates, hiked in the mountains, and wrote.
