  1. I am so freakin excited about this win. It was so well deserved. It gives me great pleasure to hand sell this. Because you can’t help but love The Warmth of Other Suns.

  2. This one is on my current wishlist. Living and working in DC, I see firsthand the legacy of that migration. The number of families from NC is huge, so much so that if you ask any classroom in our building where they are going for the holidays or spring break, half the responses might be NC. The rural roots moving to urban settings – I would love to read about the full scope of this transition.
