For our December theme, we went with ‘Wild: Journeys into Nature’. After a one of a kind year in 2020, we wanted to end the year by exploring the beauty and meditative powers of nature.
Our final shortlist took 3 wonderfully different perspectives on this theme:
- Tough Women > Adventuring in Nature
- Underland > Transcendence into Nature
- Braiding Sweetgrass > Indigenous Wisdom in Nature
Tough Women became our December read with 37% of the vote.
