Saw Cheryl Strayed (author of two of my favorite books, Tiny Beautiful Things and Wild) and Ayana Mathis (author of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie) interviewed last night at the opening event of Portland’s Wordstock, a “festival of words.”

I was reminded of what a brilliant bad-ass Cheryl is in person and it got me to return to Tiny Beautiful Things last night, which is a serious treasure and gift to the world. Eager to read Mathis’ book as well.

More events this week from Wordstock listed here.

    I just finished Tiny Beautiful Things last week and was struck by the beauty of the writing and the thoughtfulness of her responses. Really a pleasure. Wild is next on my list.
