Our third Wild Peace Book Club gathering took place this Saturday evening! We discussed The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler. I was not a fan; Tee and The Naturalist liked it a lot more than me.
And today Brene Brown’s new book, Rising Strong, will be waiting for me on the hold self at the library after work!
My sister bought me Daring Greatly by Brene Brown for Christmas several years ago. I’d never heard of Brene before that. I quickly grew to love her writing – she’s a social worker (holla!) who researches shame, vulnerability, courage, and worthiness. And Tee and I are going to see her speak at Sixth and I in early September. (Major #spirit food!) On Brene’s website, she sums up three of her books like so:
The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you.
Daring Greatly – Be all in.
Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again.
Starting with Rising Strong today, I have a busy few months of reading books by my favorite authors. Next Tuesday, The Story of the Lost Child by Elena Ferrante comes out – which will be our next Wild Peace Book Club title. (!!!) Then Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert releases on September 22 and Career of Evil by J.K. Rowling comes out on October 20.
So, whoever you are, see you at Thanksgiving.
