Whooooo we made it to #FridayReads!! I’m about to head off on vacation, and I’m taking Tracy Chevalier’s A Single Thread, since I’ll be touring Winchester Cathedral with her for a story (YAY SO EXCITED!). Arts pal Colin Dwyer is in the midst of a cycle of reading either about Ancient Rome or space – so he’s got Barry Strauss’s Ten Caesars. And Mama Susan Stamberg has the lovely 1997 memoir The Orchard, about growing up in Ipswich, Mass. How about y’all?
