Tanner Brooks strives to take readers on a journey through the contrasts and similarities between different people and places, and what they can teach us about each other. A taste for cultural immersion and novel experience has taken him from Iceland to the Caribbean and London to Tunisia looking for transformative connections. After growing up in Sioux City, Iowa and Sun Valley, Idaho he received his BA in Political Science from Oberlin College in 2002. Interest in social issues led him to organizing, blogging, fundraising and program development for a range of political advocacy groups, election campaigns and non-profits. In 2006 he received his MA in International Studies and Diplomacy from the University of London School of Oriental and African Studies with a focus on child soldiers. From 2008 to 2009 he taught culture and politics at the University of Manouba in Tunis, Tunisia. Love Notes from Tunis: Part One is his first work in a series on his experience teaching and learning in Tunisia.

This is 'that' kind of book you don't often see anymore - the kind that you can't help but want to read aloud; smiling whilst doing it - the writing is clever, heartfelt and absorbing.
You feel every emotion, hear every voice, relish every image, get pulled in and taken along for the ride.
A story that both resonates with the familiar yet simultaneously introduces you to a world that is so new. Raw, genuine and refreshing - a 'real' and, therefore, great read!
