Sometimes you slip through the cracks: unforeseen circumstances like an abrupt illness, the death of a loved one, a break up, or a job loss can derail a life. These periods of dislocation can be lonely and unexpected.

For Katherine May, her husband fell ill, her son stopped attending school, and her own medical issues led her to leave a demanding job. Her boo, "Wintering," explores how she not only endured this painful time, but embraced the singular opportunities it offered.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
