Books Kelly Suzanne Saulsberry Loves
Kelly describes herself as a "big reader" growing up.
"As a young child growing up, I was very much interested in fiction, so I loved books like Anne of Green Gables, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret." A lot of books really touched me, like I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou.
If you're interested in social justice, government and public policy, Kelly recommends a wide variety of books, from bell hooks' ain't i a woman, to The New Jim Crow and The Big Short both about current social, political, and economic trends, to David Axelrod's memoir about his life in Politics. She also recommends Forces for Good about mission-driven not-for-profit work and Good to Great on organizational development and leadership
