Thank you for being here!

Subscribe to get full access to the BookLove Letter, for wholehearted explorations of life, through stories.

And by stories, I mean those that are personal and universal, mine and yours, the ones we find printed in books and the ones we share in conversation with one another.

Book recommendations abound, primarily titles considered world, own voices, diverse or international lit, because that’s my bailiwick. (I had to look up how to spell that, BTW. :)

Here’s what some longtime subscribers have to say:

“I'm always so happy to see you in the inbox. Because I can take a moment to stop and actually reflect about something I adore: reading. You are a brilliant, heartfelt, fully present writer. I have never looked forward to reading an email as much as I look forward to yours!” –Jeannie

“I love your newsletters. They're gentle, hopeful, and a reminder to me that life shouldn't be grasped in a chokehold but just tenderly hugged.” –Christine

“Your post moved me, and made me tear up. Again, I find myself wishing I could get every single person on earth to read your emails. We’d be so much better off!” –Lynne

All content is provided for free. Paid subscriptions will be coming, but won’t restrict what you receive. I hope you’ll see it as a way to support the overall work.
