Author Rosenblatt Finds Solace in ‘Making Toast’

Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt: Book CoverIn line with my “winter break briefs”, I think you’ll find this literary piece of considerable interest…

If you’re looking for inspiration, I heard a fantastic interview on NPR’s All Things Considered today.  ‘Making Toast’: Simple Gestures For Moving On is an interview with author Roger Rosenblatt who suddenly found himself helping his son-in-law raise his three grandchildren after his daughter Amy collapsed and died two years ago. Exceptionally moving, Rosenblatt inspired some of the most profound calls I have ever heard on a call-in program. Though I haven’t read the book Making Toast, this February 16th release will certainly be on my list.
