So. It’s been the Week of Suck to end all Weeks of Suck. And here in Boston we’re currently still waiting for an end to an intense manhunt that’s been going on nearly 24 hours. But the Boston community is holding strong, so this week’s Friday Fifteen is dedicated to Boston-area writers.
1. Nature by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great writing, but I’m more of an indoor girl.
2. Choosing a Jewish Life: A Handbook for People Converting to Judaism and for Their Family and Friends by Anita Diamant
Warm and inclusive look at conversion. Read for novel research; very interesting on its own.
3. The Ugly Vegetables by Grace Lin
How to win friends and influence people with tasty veg.
4. The Devils Arithmatic by Jane Yolen
Pretty sure I read this, but totally forgot the “time travel” and am questioning myself.
5. Drown by Junot Diaz
Read in a contemporary novel class; one of the few I really remember.
Thanks to everyone for the support and love this week! Bostonians and non-Bostonians alike, we are going to get through this.

Nice list, Annie. I am an Ugly Vegetable fan.
Thanks Cameron! Grace Lin is kind of a wizard.
Good to know you’re all hanging in there Annie. We’re thinking of you here
Thank you so much, Chas! Really appreciate the support and good thoughts.
Lovely list… I’m not in Boston but I sat glued to the screen until the bitter end. What an exchausting journey! My girlfriend, who lives in Boston, posted a stream of instagram photos over the weekend, of the city and people loving the outdoors. It made my heart so incredibly happy!
