Featured Staff Pick of the Week: The Last Painting of Sara De Vos
"This marvelous novel is as beautifully rendered as its central character, a 17th Century Dutch painting.
Dominic Smith is a master of composition as he layers and blends his wonderful paint box full of art and forgery spread out over three centuries and three different continents.  The writing is beautiful and fresh.  I did not want this book to end and only regret the painting is fictional as I would travel far to see it." -PAM 
In Becoming Wise, Krista Tippett has created a master class in living for a fractured world. Fracture, she says, is not the whole story of our time. The enduring question of what it means to be human has become inextricable from the challenge of who we are to one another. She insists on the possibility of personal depth and common life for this century, nurtured by science and "spiritual technologies," with civility and love as muscular public practice. And, accompanied by a cross-disciplinary dream team of a teaching faculty, she shows us how.
