Would a heaping dose of hope-in-the-future help you right now?  How about someone in your circles who might be looking for some inspiration?

Stack of books fanned with adds for posts

A whole lot of us are finding just that in a newly published book from my dear friend Barbara Caplan-Bennett. If you have been feeling the weight of all the crises happening in our world, if you are not sure how to find hope in the face of your daily struggles, this is a book worth your time.

Check it out for yourself and then please help spread the word.

NOSEWORTHY, A Memoir

“Noseworthy is a memoir about a woman who faced a difficult choice when diagnosed with melanoma — lose her entire nose or very possibly lose her life. Her year long journey to obtain a prosthetic nose is filled with big challenges and small victories.”

This is a real-life story of courage in the face of great trauma (or as Barbara likes to call it, “the shit show”) and, ultimately a triumph over a life-changing course of inescapable events.  Barbara has been a bright spot in my life for many years. I have always been awed by her ability to keep smiling through the tears and to welcome whatever life throws at her.

I watched her face this battle and come out on the other side with her moxie, her sense of humor, and her love of life still intact. As a writer she has a natural gift for making her readers comfortable and the skill to tell her stories in her very authentic, likable, honest voice.

Literacy is the key to overcoming so many of the challenges we face in our lives.  Being able to read  – and having access to books, something many children do not have –  opens the door for so much. The most obvious result of better literacy is a better education which leads to better job skills and a better chance to be able to support yourself and feed your family.  But beyond that books are resources for problem solving and creativity that will  give a child a way to look at the world beyond what they themselves experience.  That last result, gaining the knowledge that there are many ways of being in this world and there are other perspectives just as valuable and just as valid as yours, is the first step to developing empathy. Empathy is an invaluable and necessary tool for building understanding and compassion for other people and other cultures.  And that’s the first step to reducing the fear, hate, war, poverty and greed that seems to have overtaken our society.

 Give a child a book. That simple act can open so many doors.
