Here's Your 2016 Holiday Reading List

2016 reading list

It’s that time of year—when you finally have a chance to dig into that book you’ve had on your list forever. Or, perhaps, when you find yourself scrambling for last-minute gifts. In any case, here are some of the books Samara staff are reading over the holidays...

John Beebe: Profiles in Courage by John Kennedy  “A classic that maybe we need to revisit now.”

Christina Vietinghoff: Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis  “This story gave me a better sense of Toronto and also, humanity.”

José Ramón Martí: The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt  “A remarkable and original synthesis of social psychology, political analysis, and moral reasoning."

Jane Hilderman: Madam President: The Secret Presidency of Edith Wilson by William Hazelgrove  “I love forgotten corners of history - especially of women trailblazers!”

Kendall Anderson: Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance  "A passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis."

Bailey Greenspon: Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter by Carmen Aguirre  “This book showed me what it really means to be 'political'—when it can mean life or death.”

Happy reading and happy holidays from the team at Samara!
