BRAIDING SWEETGRASS by Robin Wall Kimmerer has been recommended to me by multiple people...
THE MUSHROOM AT THE END OF THE WORLD by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing was recommended by my crazy-smart and trustworthy coworker Luca! I am not sure where my life will take me in the future, but I do think that the way in which we treat our Earth has a HUGE ripple effect on us. Everything on Earth is connected, so learning about how nature connects to our own lives and health, the organisms of the Earth, and our neighbors. If you care about any of all of these things, you would love these books!
Composed as a series of non-fiction essays, this book follows the intellectual adventures of the author as her pursuit of a PhD in Slavic Languages and Literature takes her from Palo Alto to Uzbekistan to Leo Tolstoy's country estate. This fall I'll be starting my pursuit of a master's degree in Russian and Soviet History. Maybe one day I'll write my own memoir of my time in graduate school.
