By

January 28, 2019

I love a good strong woman protagonist, and Learning to See definitely fit that description! This work of fiction is based on the real life of Dorothea Lange, a woman photographer in a time when a woman’s work was seen more as being a mom, staying in the home….

What to Eat When isn’t the type of book I usually crave, but I’m glad it landed on my plate — no pun intended.
