Perfect for our Read Broader participants! This new book is a timely reminder that truly understanding our fears, our prejudices, and our failures (and those of our family) won’t happen until we allow ourselves to be uncomfortable and vulnerable enough to share our truths with one another, face to face, heart to heart.
