"The books I recommend to you on this list are some of the most anticipated books of Winter/ Spring 2021. They take on subjects many of us are grappling with and often find ourselves alone in. I encourage you to make a date with friends, family, or your chosen reading community and invite them to read with you so you can travel places together. Plan to meet them virtually or in person and discuss over a meal or drink.
And if you are so inspired, DM me over social media and tell me how it went. I would love to know!"
