Original Starting post for this thread:
Threads for critters, gardening, dinner, movies, etc. Does anyone read any more? What are you reading, do you recommend it, and why or why not?

My most recent read is Natasha Trethewey's "Beyond Katrina," a collection of poems and prose about the Mississippi gulf coast. I fell in love with her the first time I met her and heard her read, several years ago. In this work she confronts racism, urban development, and the way in which natural disasters reveal seams in our society. But she does so through observations about individual persons and their experiences. A very good read.

Ahh...Spokanesas. Don't get over there much, but I'm on the prettiest route to Seattle...

Just started "Hidden Figures". The book that inspired the movie. So far it's fantastic.

And on topic, Just finished "Billy Lynn's long halftime walk"

Nah. Bought it in the Miami airport. Probably wouldn't have finished it if the flight were shorter.

@Annie

Which Valley are we talking about? Auburn? Yakima? Spokane? Our favorite club is in Tukwila which is technically in the Auburn Valley. We could put you up for the night at our usual local hotel. Fondly know as "The pleasure palace".
