Trying New Foods – I actually was a little adventurous while in New Orleans. Some dishes I liked, some I didn’t. But it was really fun. Very surprised by a couple of things I did like – turtle soup and escargot. Who knew? I definitely don’t try new things often enough.
Evicted by Matthew Desmond – In this book, Desmond, a Princeton sociologist, follows eight families in Milwaukee as they struggle to keep a roof over their heads. This book is eye opening to how those that have exploit those that have not. Full of real life snapshots that will sadden, shock and at the same time have you in awe at the spirit of those that are struggling.
