(2) 4-6 Rhuday-Perkovich, in partnership with We Need Diverse Books, compiles thirteen short stories (by fourteen authors) about "everyday heroes in our midst." The entries highlight their characters through many lenses and perspectives (race, cultural background, ability, gender identity, etc.). Subject matter and tone are varied, with some of the tales featuring breezy banter and others dramatically tackling complex issues. "About the Authors" and "About We Need Diverse Books" sections are appended.
