It’s one of Emma’s favorite months to talk about books — Nonfiction November! In this episode, Emma suggests just a small selection of books that may pique your interest. Feel free to tag her in your #nonfictionnovember stacks – she’s excited to see them!
Then stick around as Natalia reviews The Power of Knitting: Stitching Together Our Lives in a Fractured World by Loretta Napoleoni. When you find yourself coming apart after a monumental and life altering moment, you may find yourself in need of someone, or something, who can stitch you back together. Learn about the timeline of knitting, first wave feminism and their views on crafts, and knitting in science!
