An intimate graphic memoir about American identity as it has shaped the author's interracial family in the aftermath of the 2016 elections.

Author Mira Jacob explores the perils and joys of parenting, marriage, and love in this amazing, award-winning memoir about race in America.When her 6-year-old, half-Jewish, half-Indian son, Z, started asking complicated questions about Michael Jackson's skin color, Jacob faced the challenge of being honest about racism in America without giving him answers that might be too much to handle at such a tender age. The result is this series of illustrated conversations between Z and the author, by turns funny, philosophical, cautious, and heartbreaking. The visual echoes between past and present make this memoir about difficult conversations all the more powerful.

Good Talk is available from SJCPL in print, e-book and downloadable e-audiobook formats.

This is the only meeting for this title; we will discuss the entire memoir.
