Favorite adult book recommendation —  Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

This beautifully written story follows a young couple as they maneuver emigration and displacement.  While a reasonably quick read, its impact will linger long.  Hamid’s main character reminds us that “…we are all migrants through time.”

 

 

Favorite young adult book recommendation — The Yearling Fish by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

This is a beloved book from my childhood that helped to create a voracious love of reading.  Decades later, I can still recreate the feeling of totally immersing myself in a story and visualizing the scenes.
