Katie

Katie always carries a large purse. Why? It has to be big enough to fit a book (or two) and the crossword puzzle, so she can squeeze in some reading while attending her kids' many sporting events.

 

Three books that she loves to recommend are:

 

  • The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor
  • This One Summer by Jillian Tamaki
  • Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
