This NYT story nyti.ms/3nGzb5F got us thinking about #LeaveMe, too. Super-bestselling author @gayleforman's excellent novel explores this, when a woman focuses on herself for a brief moment, with such heart and complexity. Check it out: bit.ly/3nJ2h4t

My fifth grader just turned in a creative writing piece that was straight up Willa Cather meets Cormac McCarthy about a daughter who takes over her mother's midwifery practice and dies in a dust storm - in 400 words. Okay!

Agreed. Get #AsGoodasGone here: ow.ly/QSLp30s7GS7
Loved #AsGoodAsGone by #LarryWatson in @AlgonquinBooks. A story about relationships and how they bend time and people, often to breaking point. Key decisions are written in the sand, despite conflicts across the generations. Written with real heart and honest human understanding.
