    Children’s: Never heard of this, but I assume Jackson Pollock.

    Classics: Sea Wolf

    Non-Fiction: No idea. Maybe Stupid White Men? The title would certainly fit the situation…

    Book Club: Rabbit is Rich

    Authors: Audre Lord

    Book Bag: They should really call this category genre fiction because 95% of the time it seems like it’s either mysteries or sci fi. No idea.
