Today is March 29th, 2017, and as I'm writing this, Love Is Love has already raised over $165,000 in proceeds for those impacted by the Pulse nightclub tragedy in Orlando last June. In the face of such darkness, a response like this is extraordinary. Within this comic book anthology, you'll find stories and artwork that are moving and beautiful. It is a profound tribute to those lost, those who survived, and those left behind to endure. Read it and remember love is love.

Charmaine Craig’s new novel, Miss Burma, is nothing short of stunning. Based on the lives of her mother and grandparents in Burma, Craig deftly tells the epic story of one family as they try to survive the horrors of World War II, independence, and then civil war. What separates this book from others is its frank look at who and what survives under such perilous conditions. Especially for readers like me unfamiliar with Burma, here is a chronicle of loss and love in a country too long neglected by the world.

It's hard to remember that periodically you need to contort your facial muscles, allow the zygomatic major muscle to become stimulated and constrict your abdomen. What am I talking about? Laughing! It's like a breath of fresh air you give yourself. Elinor Lipman’s new book is that breath of fresh air. In this romantic comedy you follow the adventures (mis or otherwise) of Faith Frankel, a professional thank you letter writer. After buying a house in a small town she encounters a whole host of hilarious characters with which she engages in witty repartee. Treat yourself to a laugh!
