It’s Raining Books!

Easter really cut into my reading time! Now I’m back and have recently read some good ones: Miriam Toews’s Women Talking, a fictionalized story about the “ghost rapes” of Bolivia, David Brooks’s latest musings on morality The Second Mountain, Preet Bharara’s Doing Justice and Mayor Pete’s (he’s an Episcopalian!) memoir Shortest Way Home. This week I will be starting a series called “One Minute Reviews” on Instagram. Follow us so you can check it out!  We also have new spring gifts for Moms and Teachers,…

Lately I’ve been reading books at the intersection of history, politics and…

New For Fall

Dear Friends, I love fall. Colorful mums and gourds, the crunch of fallen leaves, a hint of wood fire in the air, and best of all: NEW FALL BOOKS!
