Books to read to celebrate the day… what books would you add to the list?
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
Great choices! I loved The Red Tent.
I read it a while ago but still remember.
Did you read Day After Night by her? It was just as wonderful.
I haven’t, and I’m looking for a good book – thanks!
