Every month Bea Mikulecky gathers a list of books recommended by our readers. We call it Book Talk because it's where we talk about books in our newsletter. There are no in‑person events that go with these listings. Complete list.


After a nice long walk, we invite you to relax with a few episodes of one of the many great series on Netflix and other streaming services. You are invited to share your suggestions for future newsletters. Complete list.


An excellent source of information and entertainment, podcasts are becoming increasingly popular. You can listen to podcasts on your phone, tablet, or computer. Complete list.
