If you're a reader, you have more books in the queue than you're going to read. Here is one of 2017's top novels that is my first staff for The Hickory Stick Bookshop in 2018. Human Acts by South Korean author Han Kang is both tender and unsettling - and well worth reading . . .

Yesterday, I was the featured poet at www.naturewriting.com with two poems. Both of them address climate change. Another poem will appear in mid-January.

Chef Kashia Diaz-Cave had a simple desire - to teach her sons how to cook. What she soon learned was that more than her sons were interested, and she created a non-profit organization called My City Kitchen. Kashia's story is especially important now in a time when immigrants are being scapegoated and devalued. I hope my article provides some insight into Kashia's struggles and successes as she fulfills her vision. She is a great American story and more so a kind and loving person.
