A quiet but intense essay collection that uses art to examine and make sense of our shared humanity. --Dontana, Collection Management Librarian

Notes
This cookbook has many easy-to-follow recipes. It surely contains many recipes to “sing about.” I have cooked three recipes from this book, “Better-Than-Mom’s Mashed Potatoes,” “Candied Sweet potatoes,” and “Red Beans and Rice.” All of the dishes came out perfect! I’m looking forward to trying more of these recipes! --Rashmi, Adult Services Librarian

A wonderful memoir that manages to be quiet yet powerful. Dawn Turner's writing is beautiful even when she writes about terrible things. --Kathy, Collection Management Librarian

I read the audiobook, and I enjoyed Amber's humor and delivery. Beyond that, the essays were amazing. --Dontana, Collection Management Librarian
