Today I’m reading
CASTE: THE ORIGINS OF OUR DISCONTENTS. I’ve been looking forward to Isabel Wilkerson’s new book since reading an excerpt in the New York Times a few weeks ago. She is a masterful storyteller, and her revelations about caste in America, India, and Nazi Germany and their connections are sure to be thought-provoking and timely.

I just finished Susan Wiggs’ wonderful novel THE LOST AND FOUND BOOKSHOP. Interesting characters, an intriguing setting, some history, a mystery, and a little romance. What a pleasure!
The Lost and Found Bookshop by Susan Wiggs
Discovering a new voice is always exciting. I found THIS IS ONE WAY TO DANCE on the list “For the Writer & Reader.” Sejal Shah’s essays explore her immigrant heritage and the ways that she identifies herself. Reviewers call it “bold and brave,” “a sensitive, poignant collection.”
This Is One Way To Dance by Sejal Shah
INDIAN NO MORE, on our “Children’s Fiction” list, won the 2020 American Indian Youth Literature Award for Middle Grade Fiction. Regina and her family move to Los Angeles from their Oregon reservation when the government declares that her tribe, the Umpqua, no longer exists. Based on author Charlene Willing McManis’ experiences in the ‘50s, this is a moving account of a child trying to find who she is in a new world.

WELCOME FALL! PUMPKIN SPICE, A GOOD BOOK, AND A COZY BLANKET

September 15, 2020

Days are warm yet cool nights and chilly mornings remind us FALL IS COMIN'. Fireplace lit, Pumpkin Spice is back and there's an autumn wreath on the front door. BLANKETS are calling me! What's your routine to "Greet The Day?" Sitting on the patio with my daily read, watching the birds at the feeders, hot beverage at my side, and a cozy blanket across my lap that's my "Good Morning World" routine!

With your comfort in mind, I've selected a few customers' favorites from OutWest Shop's HERO FOR HOME COLLECTION!  During the month of September 2020 when you make a purchase of any of these blankets, 20% is donated to support low power, community, non-profit radio station - KUPR - home of the OutWest Hour Radio Show. New blanket styles are added to this collection regularly. Softer and warmer than fleece, these unique blankets are made from an innovative fabric called Microplush. Double sided, machine washable and dryable, softer with each washing. Our vendor partner has everything in stock now - but winter's coming!
