Greetings all,

With the beginning of spring and the arrival of new hope - accompanied, inevitably, by fresh and continuing challenges - I'd like to highlight two new books from Skinner House that we're feeling particularly energetic about. 

Desmond Gets Free is a wonderfully crafted picture book for young readers that takes on the troubling idea of neutrality in instances of injustice. Inspired by a famous quote from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Desmond Gets Free features Matt Meyer's thoughtful story and lush watercolor illustrations by artist Khim Fam.

This Day in Recovery: 365 Meditations, edited by Lane Campbell and Katie Kandarian-Morris, is a thoughtful and powerful spiritual tool in the toolkit for those in recovery and their families. No matter what you may be recovering from, This Day in Recovery offers short, daily experiences to help bring readers back to their spiritual center in moments of struggle and questioning.

These are, of course, a small sample of the many resources we have available that address the spiritual and justice needs and issues specific to our time and place. As always, we'd love for you to browse our full, ever-changing selection regularly and contact us with any suggestions or inquiries.

Keep reading!
