Whether you need distraction during Thanksgiving travel, or want to while away a sunday afternoon engrossed in pages you cannot put down, we have this month’s best reads for every occasion.
This is the place- Margot Kahn
The word home means something different to everyone. Just uttering this one word can fill us with a deep sense of rootedness—or remind us of things we have lost and people and things we’ll never get back. In This Is the Place, a new collection edited by Margot Kahn and Kelly McMasters, writers including Amanda Petrusich, Naomi Jackson, Jane Wong, and Jennifer Finney Boylan all explore what makes a home. This is a great read, especially on a cosy winter’s day when you feel so at ease in the comfort of your own home.
