Thea Murray and I’m smear Mori from sisters. Welcome to the Screen Actors Guild Foundation book paths. And today we’re going to be reading no mirrors in my house. You know, it’s mirror. When I was first introduced to this book, I was very intrigued by the title, no mirrors in my known as house. And I actually had to ask myself, how would this world, or how would our society actually be without any mirrors? I mean, would there be any stereotypes? I like to book because I thought it sounded like a song and it kinda had a wonderful rhythm to it. So I’m very excited. I think it’s very colorful and fun. And the author of the book, as you say, barn well, and illustrations and paintings are by Cynthia St. James. There were no mirrors and manage and house. No mirror. My mother. So the beauty that I saw him, everything compute each and everything was in her eyes. Like the ray of the sun. There were no mirrors in mind, LSS, no mirrors and bananas house. So I never knew that my skin was to black. I never knew that my nose was too flat. I never knew that my clothes didn’t fit. I never knew there were things that I miss because the beauty and everything was in her eyes of the firm. There are no mirrors in my Lana’s house, no mirrors in my ananas house. I was intrigued by the cracks and the wash. I tasted with joy, the dust that would fall. The noise in the hallway with music to me. The trash and the rubbish just cushioned, mushy and beauty and everything was in her. Like the rise. Within. There are no mirrors in mainland US House, no mirrors in Madonna’s house. The world outside was a magical place. I only knew love, and I never knew hate. And the beauty and everything was in the chat. The deacons, deep into my Chao, little, deep into my eyes. In the beginning when I told you this book reminded me of a song. Actually it was inspired by a sign, you know, the author IIFE barn. Well, she’s in a group called sweet honey in Iraq.
