• “These Words Matter” At a Glance: 2017

    I can’t believe we’re three years into the “These Words Matter” segment. This year, another 12 fantastic authors contributed, and their choice titles were sometimes surprising (and often not widely popular). What’s the book that was transformative for you? This year was the first time that the “These Words Matter” segment encountered some obstacles. The roster changed slightly as the year progressed. I’m so happy with how the list turned out.

Before we rush into the new year, though, I wanted to talk some about my favourite read of 2016. Let’s face it: 2016 was difficult.

Despite the negativity and devastation that seemed to constantly get thrown at us last year,…
