Let’s play a game. It’s called, “Being You, Right Now.” Perhaps you’re reading this on your way to work, defending your corner of the train with a well-placed elbow. Or are you at home? If so, please put the kettle on.
So begins Traveler-and-Sketchbook-Artist Candace Rose Rardon’s illustrated essay on love, travel, and tea, “Home is a Cup of Tea.” Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, so we’ve chosen a few awesome reads from around the web that you can enjoy this holiday:
EDIT 8 February: New Releases & Upcoming
Daniel Stone, The Food Explorer. Botanist David Fairchild’s exploits led to the widespread love of kale from Croatia, mangoes from India and avocados from Chile.
Laurie Gwen Shapiro, The Stowaway. An adventurous teenager’s journey from 1920s New York’s Lower East Side to Antarctica.
Educated: A Memoir, Tara Westover. A young woman leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge.
