Reading Blackberry Winter, by the cultural Anthropologist, Margaret Mead, about the early years of her life.
Her favorite book of all time--Letters to a Young Poet, by Ranier Maria Rilke. It's beautiful, soul affirming and encouraging. Bell Hooks--an author, feminist, and social activist--in her memoir, called the book a "life raft."
