The Camel Bookmobile by Masha Hamilton (2007)
Fiona Sweeney, a 36-year-old Brooklyn librarian, jumps at the opportunity to travel to Kenya to manage a bookmobile service to the nomadic bush people. Traveling by camel, Fi brings the written word to Mididima, her favorite stop. Hamilton captures the traditional nomadic life beautifully. The clash between Fi’s well-intended help and this traditional culture raises interesting questions.
