“Wild Lives” Book Release Today!

Congrats Janie Chodosh & Lori Robinson on the release of your latest book!


“ …Wild Lives is so desperately important. The people in this book are united by their belief that it is not too late to turn things around. You will be inspired by their stories. You will realize that there is hope for the future if we join the fight, if each of us does our bit.”

– Dr. Jane Goodall
 “Wild Lives” is available on Amazon, IndieBound, Barnes & Noble and at many local bookstores.
“A children’s-zoo veterinarian who became an advocate for the world’s dwindling cheetah population. An intrepid Indian scientist who confronted the dangerous scourge of elephant poaching. A pioneering female biologist who became the world’s leading expert on giraffes…With the world facing an unprecedented spate of species extinction, the survival of iconic wildlife, such as the polar bear and such lesser-known creatures as Israel’s long-billed hoopoe, is often up to courageous individuals who commit to their passion and sacrifice their comfort so that the planet maintains a healthy biodiversity. Thanks to the environmentally committed interviewers Robinson and Chodosh, 20 conservationists succinctly tell their stories in this illuminating volume that may well inspire readers to take up the cause.”

Dear Sugar Podcasts

Tiny-Beautiful-ThingsTiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed is one of my favorite books.

If you love it too then I want to remind you that Cheryl is the co-host, along with Steve Almond, of WBUR’s podcast Dear Sugar Radio, which originated with her popular Dear Sugar advice column on The Rumpus and Tiny Beautiful Things is a collection of those advice columns.

That’s good news for the “lost, lonely and heartsick” as new episodes are released weekly. Click here to check it out.

If you have a question for Sugar you can email Sugar at dearsugarradio@gmail.com and perhaps it will get answered on the show. I’ll be listening!!
