A personal note from Mark Nepo & Brooke Warner.
Sent July 27th, following their Conversations with Authors session.
Brooke and I want to thank you for taking the time to join our Book Passage conversation. And a huge thank you to Book Passage as well for being such a constant resource of us all.
Three books I highly recommend that have been transformative for me are: Dark Wood to White Rose by the Jungian Analyst Helen Luke, Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, and A Poet’s Journal by the Greek poet George Seferis. Each will hold tools for the times. We hope you are safe and well.
—Many blessings, Mark and Brooke
