Looking for something good to read this month? Check out these book recommendations for November from our executive board. Happy reading!
Elizabeth Says: I just finished it and it is SO good!
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
Liz Says: It’s just as good in print but the audio has narration by David Sedaris, Nick Offerman, Saunders himself and the full cast is 166 people! Each character was voiced by a different person & it was very, very well done.
Lourdes Says: For Jane Austen’s followers, is a reality check. England in the 1800 was far from glamorous lifestyles as depicted in Jane Austen novels. I recommend this book for the history buff or the Anglophile.
Stephanie Says: I hadn’t known about the Japanese competitive sport karuta until I heard of this series! It’s enjoyable to read, with light-hearted moments mixed with poignant scenes that really develop the story and characters. Getting to know the nuances of karuta has been very interesting. Plus, it’s been made into an anime, so the story can be watched as well as read.
Violet Says: I enjoyed this quick but powerful guide to reclaiming creative practice in today’s fast-paced society. I was especially inspired by the discussion of the many forms creativity can take, and the importance of listening to our own authentic creative voice.
