Did you know that today is International Migrants Day? This is a day to celebrate our differences & how migrants make our world a better place. That is why the prompt this week is: What is one of your favorite books that feature a culture that is not your own?
I know that I haven’t stopped shouting out this book since I read it and posted my review, but it clearly made an impression on me! The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar was the first book that came to mind, and was the best example of learning about a different culture than mine. The main character is a Bengali immigrant living in Ireland, and it talks a lot about Bengali culture. It starts with a Bengali wedding, and there’s a lot of elements of Bengali culture, including food, family, and holidays, and it was fascinating! I also loved seeing how cultures learn to new situations without having to assimilate or lose what is important to them, and this book was the perfect example of that.
What are some other books that feature other cultures? Share them, so I can learn more about different cultures!
