In When We Were Ghouls, a quick paced and riveting narrative, Amy Wallen explores the slippery nature of memory and confronts what it means to be a “good human.” Join us as we learn about Amy’s life and how when she was seven, her southern, blue-collar family was transferred from Ely, Nevada to Lago, Nigeria. Amy is a writer, editor, teacher and baker.

Isabel Cruz’s new cookbook, The Latin Table, is full of simple, easy-to-make recipes that are also health-conscious and flavorful.
