What do Taylor Swift, Cognitive Psychology, Gucci Mane, Dissent, and The Most Dangerous Person Alive have in common? The answer is the “Hater Mindset”.
In “Be a Hater” Dr. Parham examines the emergence of the “Hater Mindset” in contemporary culture. This book delves into a subtle and subconscious cultural shift in the concept of “hater”. The shift from defining a hater as someone who holds you back or who stops you from succeeding, to viewing a “hater” as anyone who disagrees or dissents from your opinion. This shift while subtle has strong implications for critical thinking, the value of relationships, an individual’s happiness, cognitive entitlement, and more.
In “Be A Hater” Dr. Parham brings this subconscious shift to the surface and equips the reader to counter its effects by challenging them to “Be A Hater!”

Concerned about the lack of diversity in children’s books, Charnaie Gordon and her two kids are bridging the literacy gap with their new project that brings diverse books to children in each of the 50 states.
Gordon founded the Here Wee Read platform, which highlights diversity in children’s books, featuring multiple races, cultures and religions. The curated books also teach children about important subjects such as immigration and politics.
Through “50 States 50 Books”, Gordon and her two children are sending these significant books to non-profit organizations, libraries, schools, and more, to every state in the country.
Since launching this project, Gordon shares that several people have felt inspired to help, and have bought titles from Here Wee Read’s Amazon Wish List, that includes multiple sections such as “Juneteenth Books”; “Asian Picture & Chapter Books”; and “Latino/Bilingual Picture Books”.
