June 21st: The Beauty in Breaking, by Michele Harper. A moving memoir told in a series of interconnected stories drawn from the author's life and work as an emergency room physician. Harper explores how we all are broken--physically, emotionally and psychically--and what we can do to heal ourselves as we try to heal others.
July 19th: Maybe You Should Talk To Someone, by Lori Gottleib. From the perspective of both a therapist and a patient, Gottleib offers a boldly revealing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.
