Dear Canada: This new book series I’m going to try is the Canadian version of Dear America. So far the series is funny, heartwarming, tragic, and edgy at the same time. Here are my favorites and three new ones. Welcome to my bookshelf.
Battle of the Books: First place goes to Young Angels. Second place goes to Foreign Friends. Finally, the third place goes to...Team Tragedy. And that’s the end of the book battle. 📚
"Why is your name Jose?" . I was named after José Rizal, the revolutionary writer whose novel, “Noli me Tangere,” exposed life under Spanish colonization of the Philippines. Spanish rule ended after the Spanish-American War. The United States "bought" the Philippines for $20 million during the Treaty of Paris. . But my Jose is not José because when the Americans took my native country, their typewriters didn't have accent marks. . My name is a combination of Spanish colonialism and American imperialism. . This picture was taken at Philippine Expressions Bookshop in San Pedro, Calif., which organized an event for “DEAR AMERICA,” moderated by @anthonyocampo.phd and hosted by my friend @gtongi. Outside the bookstore is this life-size cutout of Rizal. . #DearAmerica #Bookstagram #FilipinoHistory #AmericanHistory

Did anyone else read these as a kid? I was thrilled to spot this little clutch of titles at the book sale a few weeks back. I’d gotten hooked on My Name Is America after Dear America and Royal Diaries, but they’re still so good.
Another finished cup of tea, another finished book. What a great start to the weekend. Go out and read this if you can-it’s highly informative and transformative. Happy reading! TGIF! • • • #books #booksennooks #booksinnooks #nerdalert #reader #bookworm #alwaysreading #dearamerica #joseantoniovargas #readmore #learnmore #readingispower

Dear America, Why is the hatred running rapid Evil bullets killing Black men A system never meant to be fair Got our Mother's pulling out our hair Got our Brothers fearing for their life And the justice system ruling that it's right What kind of message are they sending What's right is wrong without rescindment They tell us vote to find revision But hate finds the loop in the system Its just a modern day lynching That America's defending. .

When I finished the first draft of ”DEAR AMERICA,” I emailed Michelle Alexander, one of my personal heroes, and asked her to read it. Through her scholarship, especially through her book, “The New Jim Crow,” Michelle changed the way we think and talk about mass incarceration. . “If you feel compelled, I’d be honored to have your blurb on the book of my book,” I wrote her on email. . Tonight, in front of a packed audience at @unionseminary , we discussed the book. We talked about the need to connect the dots between mass incarceration and mass detention. What a privilege to share the stage with her. . #DearAmerica #bookstagram
I was about to dive in to Howard Zinn's "A Peoples History of the US", but I gotta sneak in a few pages of this fella before I hafta make dinner and head to work. Thanks for the book loan @subtleacts !! #dearamerica
📚 Signed Book GIVEAWAY! We're showing our #Scribd readers some love today! Two winners will get a signed copy of @joseiswriting 's #DearAmerica ! Tag a friend in the comments to enter! Make sure you follow Scribd to be eligible. DEAR AMERICA is Jose Antonio Varga's wrenching story of leaving the Philippines at a young age to come to America, and finding at the age of 16 that he is undocumented. His book is not only about the immigrant experience, but about having to live a life in hiding and feeling trapped by secrets. It's a vital story to include in the national conversation about immigration. Find it on Scribd in the link in our bio.

You think them politicians really worrying about you? You think they became politicians so they can stay up at night thinking about how to make your life better? . . At the very least, hold them accountable. One of the easiest ways to do that is to VOTE! If they ain’t doing the people’s work, vote them out. If they’ve made promises and you’re willing to hold them to some sort of truth, vote them in. Politics is politics, but the right to vote is our unalienable democratic right. #votingmatters #vote #dearamerica #swingthevote #democracy #neworleans #letsgo #whynot #blackvotesmatter #its2018 #noexcuses #bricemillerfoto #iphotography #iphone6splus

READ THIS BOOK! I am so glad I stopped in the middle of the book I was reading to read Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen - especially right before elections. I realize that I often take my own US Citizenship for granted. It is just pure luck that I was born in the US - and that my family immigrated to America long enough ago for me to be a citizen today. I am not nearly as eloquent as Jose Antonio Vargas is in his book, so instead of trying to come up with something profound to say I will just urge you to read his book - and to VOTE - for all of those citizens (documented, but especially those undocumented who work as friends, neighbors, and citizens and do not have the ability to vote in a home country we share). Also - consider donating to Define America: https://defineamerican.com/donate/ #dearamerica

I posted this on my personal account, but want to do so over here too. #ichoosemyself has everything to do with choosing to be healthy, safe, free and strong. And the best most direct way I can choose to help others choose all of those things for themselves is to vote. I’m thankful my friend @steveagnosandson invited me to lend my voice to his @clubsodaproductions ‘ GET OUT THE VOTE video. Since 11/9/16 I’ve been lookin toward tomorrow with hope that enough of us will be as American as we can be and change the course of my children’s lives. Yes, being American does mean voting. All politics is personal and my personal is determined by your politics. There’s just no excuse for sitting out this election tomorrow. My daughter’s uterus and my son’s freedom of expression do depend on it. I smell justice and integrity cookin - bout to go get me a serving.

"Maybe its time to come home" How do you simply drop the life you know and leave the only place you've ever known as home to return "home" to a place you dont know? Good book...! #dearamerica #notesofanundocumentedcitizen #dearamericanotesofanundocumentedcitizen #joseantoniovargas
I am not ready to go back to work tomorrow, I am ready for my vacation in a couple weeks. I’m busy getting my house clean and ready for new flooring and putting some books together for my mom to read.
So if I had to choose between gilded or deckled pages, I’d go with gilded. I don’t like deckled pages, especially if it doesn’t fit with the book. The only time I am fine with it, is with the example provided in the picture. It definitely adds to the story, making it a bit more believable, like I’m actually reading someone’s diary. And I finished my reread that I’ve featured in my pics the past couple of days and I’m thinking of continuing my reread of the series.

“I tell the truth....when I can” so trump, the question still remains. When can you not tell the truth?? He has bluntly stated on national television that he is not a truthful individual . I can’t stress enough how important it is for all of us to exercise our right to vote. Show of hands, who all wants a liar as our leader of the “free world” . . . . . . #politics #wakeup #govote #activist #trump #2018 #dearwhitepeople #dearblackpeople #dearamerica #futureattorney #futurepolitician #democrat #republican #boarder
