Erin French$28.00 $26.04
I was jumping to finish tasks so I could get back to reading this story. Knowing Erin's story from The Lost Kitchen instagram, national reputation and now television show, I thought I knew her whole deal. Woah, I did not expect the enormous amount she has overcome to get where she is today. Incredible to think of all that has been healed and seen. Such a rich story and I feel lucky she shared it with us.
Frances Palmer$35.00 $32.55
A beautiful book: lovely photographs, thoughtful and inspiring meditations, honest portrayal of the work behind a craft, inspiring for anyone who wishes they "had more time to pursue _____." A nearly perfect Mother's Day gift choice.
Bernardine Evaristo$17.00 $15.81
Reading this for the second time, it is such an amazing book. Twelve different stories of "women" set in England, different heritages, different voices, somewhat interwoven but never in a ridiculous way. Each chapter is a delight to read.
A great collection! Each year I check these out, and you never know how they will be--it really depends on the guest editor. This has a good mix of meaty history and topical things alongside purely lovely writing.
Jenn Shapland$22.95 $21.34
A fascinating, joyful exploration of Carson McCullers and the author herself. I loved this book.
Samantha Power$29.99 $27.89
Samantha Power has been appointed to Biden's White House, so now is great time to learn more about her amazing work. Honest depictions of every stage of her life.
David McCullough$22.00 $20.46
This book has been so excited to go to Paris when it reopens! It was incredible to learn what Paris was like in the 1800s, through the eyes of so many famous Americans.
Trevor Noah$18.00 $16.74
Like a collection of short stories, I was stunned by all that Trevor Noah experienced as a child. And I learned so much about apartheid. This is also a great one to listen to!
Jacques Pépin$19.99 $18.59
yet another title to prove that my unspoken theme for 2021 seems to be: France! Jacques has amazing stories from his childhood, his young apprenticeship, his first jobs, his whole life! You begin to forget how young he is for most of it because he worked so hard and did so much. This is beautifully edited and reads a weekend read.
