Below are the books that I read or listened to in 2017 listed below in no particular order. I was on two launch teams for new books this year: Lauren Casper’s “It’s Okay About It” and Osheta Moore’s “Shalom Sistas.” Both of these ladies were wrote wonderful books and were lots of fun to work with in their own ways! I also started my Masters in Social Work so some of my books are related to courses and I’ve been doing lots of reading of journal articles as well. One other thing is that I’ve begun to discover podcasts so some of commute time has moved from audiobooks to podcasts.

Any book or podcast recommendations for the next year?
