11: Stuff I Enjoyed this Semester

Hi friends,

My Semester at the Library experiment is coming to a close. Starting next week, I’ll be going back to school. What an incredible ride it has been! Thank you for all those that have kept up with my journey. In my next newsletter, I’ll share a reflection piece for this experiment.

During this semester, I’ve read, watched, and listened to many things. Many of these things have surprised me, moved me, or changed my world view. Every week, I share a few of them in my newsletter.

Now that it’s the end of the semester I wanted to share the best of the best. Here are my favorite things from this semester.
