This Week’s Book Talks- 2/13-17

17 Feb

Another full five-day week. That makes two in a row! President’s Day on Monday will break this streak, but I’m willing to suffer through another day off.

I bookended this week with nofiction, too. Monday’s book was Phineas Gage: A Gruesome but True Story About Brain Science by John Fleischman.

Friday’s book was Blizzard by Jim Murphy.

In between, there was poetry  and fiction.

Red Butterfly  by A. L.  Sonnichsen is novel in verse about a Chinese  girl with a deformed hand raised in secret by an American woman must navigate China’s strict adoption system.
