Rev. Dr. Garry Dorien awarded the American Library Association’s Choice Award

Rev. Dr. Garry Dorien’s book American Democratic Socialism has won the American Library Association’s Choice Award. This is the third time he has won this award. Previous times were for Social Ethics in the Making and for Breaking White Supremacy. The Choice Award “reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by Choice and brings with it the extraordinary recognition of the academic library community.” 

Rev. Dr. Gary Dorrien shared, “I am grateful to the American Library Association for this wonderful honor. The book was a labor of love. Writing it was a constant reminder to me of the friends who have graced my life through forty-plus years of solidarity activism in Massachusetts, New York City, New Jersey, upstate New York, Michigan, and back to New York City. Teaching at Union while I get these last books out of my head is a singular honor for me that I cherish."
