"I’m currently reading the wonderfully written No Place Like Home: Lessons in Activism from LGBT Kansas by C.J. Janovy. I’ve been primarily leaning on poetry and memoirs this past year, but I’m realizing just how much I also needed a dose of sobering yet hopeful local history. " - Mary Maxine Luber, Young Friends of the Kansas City Public Library
"I'm currently reading Hamnet. So far, it's beautifully written historical fiction about Shakespeare, his son, Hamnet, and his wife, Anges and their family's experience with the Black Plague. Note: in Shakespeare's time, "Hamnet" and "Hamlet" were considered the same name and interchangeable." -Katie Hastert, Young Friends of the Kansas City Public Library
