Interview – A.M. Leibowitz

I read a book last week that made me cry. Not because it was sad, but because it reached across decades to lift the bandages from old wounds. This takes a special talent, and A.M Leibowitz wields this skill with finesse in their latest book, Year of the Guilty Soul. You can get it in … Continue reading Interview – A.M. Leibowitz

We had a lively discussion. It's a hard topic to discuss. We all have strong and valid opinions, and … Continue reading Silent Lessons
