Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg's On Repentance and Repair: Making Amends in an Unapologetic World, the UUA's 2023/2024 Common Read, fixes a crucial new lens on repentance, atonement, forgiveness, and repair from harm—from personal transgressions to our culture’s most painful and unresolved issues. 

No Meat Required: The Cultural History and Culinary Future of Plant-Based Eating, by Alicia Kennedy, is a history of plant-based eating in the U.S. that delves into the subcultures and politics that have defined alternative food. 

The Tending Years: Understanding Your Child's Earliest Rituals, by J.L. Shattuck, is unlike most

In A Fire at the Center: Solidarity, Whiteness, and Becoming a Water Protector, North Dakota UU Minister and activist Karen Van Fossan asked herself what it means, as a descendent of colonialism, to resist her own colonial culture. (10/3 - pre-order now)

And Through the Lens of Whiteness: Challenging Racialized Imagery in Pop Culture, by Diane S. Grimes & Liz Cooney, is an essential resource for anyone who wants to enter the next stage of their antiracist journey—recognizing, analyzing, and confronting the perpetuation of racism in our visual world.
