Recommended Titles
Runaway by Erin Keane Erin weaves complex subjects, stories, and concepts into a beautiful tapestry of a book.

Rust Belt Femme by Raechel Anne Jolie. A memoir full of heart. A time machine. In some ways a reflection. In other ways a portal.

Sustainable. Resilient. Free. by John Warner. Reading this while being in grad school, preparing for a possible future in higher education, was very eye opening. An education in education.

Rust Belt Arcana by Matt Stansberry and David Wilson. I know my name's on it, but the writing is so damn good it's why I signed up to paint 78 pictures for it. Matt's writing is poetic, visceral, and thoughtful. I feel lucky to have been a part of this book.
