SLW! Recommends Literacy Service

This service contains books (paper, eBooks, audio), video (DVD, internet), audio (CD, MP3), blogs, podcasts, sites. These are somewhat current resources. For classic resources, visit Study/Activity/Action Guides. I have interacted with each of these titles and sources.

SLW! does not sell anything, but we recommend resources from other sources and publishers, which we urge you to get from your public library or your local, independent bookstore. For help locating a local source, visit Some are free on the internet. Most of the links take you to my previews. Some of the titles are faith-based, most are not. They vary from simple to complex, from friendly to polemical.

Find a TOPIC that interests you; try a few of the entries. Then move to another TOPIC. The titles are not in alphabetical or priority order.

Literacy Topics:  Activism | Celebrating | Economic Environmental Family/Children Financial Food, Water, Agriculture Happiness Health/Medical |

Historical Media Peace/War/Militarism/Empire Political Spiritual/Faith Time and Work General

What’s NOW with SLW!

What’s Coming

What’s Happened

  • Not Ordinary Times – April Podcast – Episode 18 – Guest: Peter Sawtell of Eco-Justice Ministries discussing a new initiative — a challenging call to “be the church” in this time of environmental crisis — backed up with a comprehensive set of resources and background materials that will guide churches through a six-month season of worship and preaching that takes seriously the devastation of the global environment. (The weeks between Pentecost, 6/8/14, and Advent, 11/30, are traditionally Ordinary Time, the non-festival part of the Church Year.) + Resources for Pentecost and Ordinary Time from Worship Alternatives
  • In stark contrast to the misuse of farmland to produce biofuels presented in a recent episode of TheCommonGoodPodcast, Vicki Robin presents a vision of locally produced food and strong community in Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: What Eating Closer to Home Can Teach Us About Food, Community, and Our Place on Earth. Hear my interview with Vicki on the recent Simple Living Works! Podcast. With Joe Dominguez, Vicki Robin wrote one of the most enduring, influential books to have come from the sustainable living movement, Your Money or Your Life.
