I’ve also heard good things about the book educated I think I’m going to buy it and read it
The Color of Water.
Agreed! Loved it.
I Am Malala
Also, I have a question (and yes, there is such a thing as a dumb question): is an autobiography and a memoir the same thing? Anyone? ??
? Now you got me thinking maybe you should start a new thread with that question? Good one!
The only point of difference I can imagine is maybe an autobiography is the entire life while a memoir is more partitioned, if that makes sense?
Yes, that what I believe, a memoir is about certain years and an autobiography is about a whole long life.
Makes sense! Thanks! ??
An autobiography is the story of someone’s whole life. A memoir usually only deals with a specific part of it.
Walking with the Wind by John Lewis…it’s an AMAZING story/account of the civil rights movement. It’s heartbreaking and uplifting all at once. It’s AMAZING ❤️

Ulysses S Grant & Anne Moody
OMG, Harpo Marx (“the kindest man in Hollywood) I can’t believe someone else thinks Harpo Speaks is the best autobiography. Right up there with David Niven’s The Moon’s a Balloon.

Night by Elie Wiesel
This is an odd in, but autobiography of fukuzawa yukichi. He was a teacher and activist in the late 1800s in Japan, and founded a school that is now one of Japan’s ivy league universities. I read it in school, and really enjoyed it.
